Last week, I found out something new about Joan Padilla, candidate for Illinois Representative in District 71.

Already, I knew Joan enjoyed a fine, local reputation of impeccable character. Already, I knew Joan was a caring, articulate, bright, and hard-working woman. I knew, too, that she was good at budgeting, organizing, and managing evidenced by her executive director position of a vital, successful non-profit organization.

Here’s what I did not know about Joan Padilla: She holds a deep commitment to the education of our children. In spring 2013, Joan supported and marched with Dixon teachers. Her husband, Tom, is an active IEA member and high school educator. In addition to her keen awareness of teacher and student issues, Joan has full grasp of the depth of work necessary to improve our schools.

Joan is ready to get to work in Springfield for House District 71 and fight for all children. Joan Padilla believes all children should enjoy an equitable and fairly funded education. As an educator myself, I know Joan Padilla is what we need in Springfield. Remember, in November, a vote for this champion for education, Joan Padilla, is a vote for all students and educators and for a better future for Illinois.
