About Guzzardi for State Representative
The polls are closed, and the ballots are counted. We have prevailed.
Today, this community stood together and demanded new leadership. We said in a clear voice that public education is the right of every child, not just those who live in nice neighborhoods or have wealthy parents. We said that corporations and the very rich ought to be paying their fair share in our society just like we do, and that working people are entitled to a decent retirement that they’ve paid for and earned.
Today, we rejected the politics of cynicism and negativity and spoke out for a politics that is progressive, that is compassionate, and that is committed to a basic sense of fairness and decency.
Today, we stood up and were counted. And we put every politician in this city on notice.
I’m so grateful to every one of you — for casting a ballot for me, for volunteering on the campaign, for donating to this cause, and for supporting our efforts over these last seven months. I truly can’t put my gratitude into words. It’s overwhelming, and I owe this victory to each and every one of you.
I look forward to serving this community as its next State Representative. But the true challenges lie ahead of us. Because for everything that we did here tonight, everything that we did for the last seven months, our state’s economy is still in a shambles. Our neighborhoods are still reeling from foreclosures, our public schools still need resources, our working families are still facing crushing burdens of stagnating wages and higher taxes and fewer services from government.
But if we keep fighting, if we keep talking to our neighbors, if we can transform this battle for votes into a battle for values, I believe that we can make a lasting difference in the lives of our neighbors and the lives of the people of Illinois.
