I have had the honor of working with Sid Mathias all my years as mayor of Arlington Heights. There is no one more committed to making government work, no one more committed to finding solutions to municipal problems, and no one more responsive to both residents and elected officials from other branches of government.
In all my years as mayor, Sid has frequently called me from Springfield to discuss legislation. He understands our pension, revenue and operational problems and is always a great resource for us when there is an issue with Springfield.
Sid fights for his constituents and for his municipalities. He stands up for what is right. But most of all Sid is someone who knows how to work with both sides of the aisle to get things done that benefit our citizens.
There is no more honorable, hardworking or effective legislator than Sid Mathias and thus I endorse him for re-election.
