To the Editor:
I would like to take a moment to address�the voting record of Tony McCombie, the state�representative for Illinois’ 71st District.
On May�30, 2018, the Illinois House of Representatives voted to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, or SJRCA 4. This amendment states: “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”
I recently learned that Rep.�McCombie voted no on this amendment. I, for one, am deeply uncomfortable with the idea of my own “representative” consciously and�purposefully voting against the best interest of her constituents.
Had Ms. McCombie had her�way, this essential and historic bill would not�have passed in the Illinois House of�Representatives.
For this reason, among many, many others, I will not be supporting Tony McCombie in November’s election. I will instead be voting for Joan Padilla.
