Editor:

I have known Patrick Keenan-Devlin for many years.  He is an ethical, brilliant, articulate, persuasive & compassionate man who possesses the strength of character that we need in Springfield today.   

One of the many reasons that I support Patrick representing us in Springfield is his hands –on experience that will enable him to hit the ground running to start effecting positive change.  His work as a Legislative Director for Citizen Action/Illinois & as a Health Policy Advocate for the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law, has provided him with an understanding of how things work and don’t work in Springfield. 

His knowledge of state and national government policy is exemplary.  I believe his experience in Springfield and working knowledge of government are key to his success in improving healthcare for Illinois citizens, rights for the disabled, predatory lending reform, providing accountability and transparency in state financing, and holding Springfield accountable to its citizens and not the politicians and special interest groups.

Please join me in electing Patrick Keenan-Devlin as State Representative for the 18th District.
