Candance Chow Endorses Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz for IL-17

Today, IL-17 Democratic nominee Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz and former opponent Candance Chow released the following statements:

Candance Chow:
“Over the past few months, I have had a series of discussions with Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz and shared my concerns for the changes we need in Springfield to better serve our communities and face our challenges as a state. Jennifer’s recent statements on the need for continued pressure and action to address the culture of harassment and influence in Springfield as well as the need to restructure our campaign financing and legislative governance make me confident that Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz will bring a strong, independent voice to Springfield when we need it most. I believe we share the same commitment to ensuring that our political system is accountable to everyone and that our budget and economy give every Illinoisan an opportunity to succeed. I’m proud to endorse Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz for State Representative and look forward to working with her to further our shared commitments to our communities and state.”

Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz:
“As a District 65 School Board member and President, Candance Chow has led the fight to ensure that every child in our community receives an outstanding education. I’m thrilled to partner with her on initiatives that focus on early childhood education, workforce development, and our shared commitment to serving under-resourced areas in the 17th State Representative District. I am proud to have her support and we are excited about what we can accomplish together. With Democrats united, we will stand up to injustice and build a brighter future for Illinois.”
