Joan Padilla represents the kind of values that the people of the 71st District of Illinois want and need. Joan will be accountable to us. She has shown that accountability by attending the debate hosted by The Illinois chapter of the Alliance for Retired Americans.
By contrast, incumbent, Rep. Tony McCombie, R-Savanna, chose not to attend even though she was given many weeks notice.
Since her election, McCombie has not represented retirees and seniors or given them the voice they need in Springfield. McCombie has been a staunch, unwavering supporter of Bruce Rauner’s failed administration regardless of the impact his policies have had on seniors. For example, Rauner proposed $198 million in cuts to the State's Community Care Program (CCP) that provides vital home healthcare assistance to seniors. Rauner's reckless budget would cut the vital program and harm more than 43,000 seniors in Illinois.
As Executive Director of the Home of Hope Cancer Wellness Center, Joan knows first hand the inequities in available resources across the state. If elected, Joan will represent seniors and the under-served. This is why Joan Padilla is the best and only choice for the Illinois House District 71. Please join me in giving Joan the opportunity to serve us by voting for her on Nov. 6th.
