Letter: My vote goes to Padilla


To the Editor:

As a citizen of Illinois’ 71st District, I feel it is incumbent upon me to voice my support for the candidacy of Joan Padilla for state representative.

Joan’s professional and personal record of civic-mindedness are unimpeachable.

She is the executive director of Home of Hope, a nonprofit organization�dedicated to helping people whose lives have been impacted by cancer. She also spends her free time volunteering at area food banks. Joan has truly dedicated her life to�improving the welfare of the vulnerable among us.

It’s not just her past that makes Joan an appealing candidate. Her plans for the district point to a promising future as well. Joan understands that our region’s economic health is key to recovery in a post-coronavirus world. Even before the COVID-19�pandemic, lack of economic opportunity has been driving our young talent to other states for years. By maximizing Illinois’ investment in our district’s small business and�higher education, Joan will fight to bring us back to the economic powerhouse we once�were.

For these reasons, I am proud to say I will be voting for Joan Padilla this November.
