Candidate is not phoning it in

State Rep. Sandra Pihos has served House District 48 well, and has given much to her community. She has sponsored many events for community members, including events and fairs for veterans and seniors, summer reading programs for children, neighborhood meetings and coffees, informational open houses, and more.

She has been involved with programs in the schools and with special recreation programs. She has received awards from numerous community and state organizations. Many legislative bills benefiting the local communities have been sponsored or co-sponsored by her.

Her opponent, and his outside PAC monies, have accused Sandy of being a benchwarmer, or just "phoning it in," which doesn't seem to fit with this long list of community activities. She is being blamed for all of the many problems in the state of Illinois, but anyone who has ever taken the time to sit and talk with Sandy, knows that she deeply cares about the problems in the state and in her community, and works to solve problems, not create them. It is the sign of a desperate campaign to stoop to negative ads and slur campaigns, rather than focus on the issues and the qualifications of the candidate. It is interesting that her opponent has never even mentioned the name of House District 48 in his literature.

Take the time to learn about Representative Pihos or to speak with her and you can decide for yourself.
