 Our twenty year old granddaughter who is now one of the new Urban Students at Roosevelt University has been working her heart out as a volunteer.  I thought “ok this is good for her future in politics” but did not feel strong and excited about Patrick till I went to a coffee for him.  I sat there and could not believe what I was listening to!

I think we have another great one on our hands if we can just get him elected. 

He is an excellent speaker, has a strong mind, knows what needs to be worked on in Springfield and has an incredible personal background.  This could be another “Kennedy” or “Obama” coming our way.
