Editor:

Take a good look at Patrick Keenan-Devlin, candidate for Illinois’
18th District State Representative. He’s wise and confident, and has knowledge of Springfield and how to make things happen.  His experiences have fired his passion to work for new ways in Illinois politics. In Springfield, Patrick served as Legislative Director of Citizens Action/Illinois. He is an alum of Northwestern University and has been a committed volunteer with his church, United Way of the North Shore, the Youth Job Center and other not-for-profits. Patrick and I have worked together on several volunteer projects. As a life long volunteer, I’ve learned  whom you can count on to get things done. We can count on Patrick.

We all know that Illinois government is broken. Patrick is a candidate with the passion and drive to make needed changes. He knows what needs to be done to chart a New Way for our state. His priorities include but are not limited to ending corruption, addressing our regressive tax structure, protecting essential social services, curbing predatory lending practices, and making health care accessible. 

Patrick has real solutions to these systemic problems. He wants to make Illinois government responsible and responsive to the people of the 18th District and Illinois. Patrick Keenan-Devlin, a man with courage, commitment and independence, will do what he says he’ll do, challenge special interest groups in Springfield.

Please vote for Patrick on February 2nd in the Democratic Primary for Illinois’ 18th District State Representative. For more information, go to www.PatrickforIllinois.com.
