Candidate will fight for public schools

Posted10/7/2017 12:01 AM

As a former Glen Ellyn Elementary District 41 school board member, I can't think of a better person to run for State Representative in Illinois District 48 than Terra Costa Howard.

Terra was elected twice and served eight years on the District 41 school board. Unlike Peter Breen, who repeatedly votes against bills aimed at improving public schools, Terra is a strong advocate for public education. She will fight for our public schools, which are the backbone of our communities and local real estate values.


She's also a lawyer who represents children, the elderly, the disabled and families in crisis. I've known her, her husband Nick and their three daughters for over 15 years. I wholeheartedly endorse her candidacy to replace Peter Breen in Springfield.
