Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky - Your 40th Ward Democratic Committeeman - Patrick O'Connor

janCongresswoman Jan Schakowsky

I enthusiastically support my friend Pat O’Connor as 40th Ward Committeeman in the 2016 Democratic primary election on March 15th.

I have endorsed Pat O’Connor because of his unwavering support for equal opportunity and equal pay for women, his support for increased HIV/AIDS funding and research, and his longtime support of LGBTQ rights. He supported the creation of the Chicago LGBT Advisory Council and authored Chicago’s original human rights ordinance to protect members of the LGBT community.

I’ve also endorsed Pat O’Connor because he has been effective in improving local schools by supporting better pay for teachers, writing the law that created Local School Councils, and securing funding for renovations to every single 40th Ward elementary school.

Pat has worked to make the 40th Ward a safer place to live. He supports commonsense gun control laws that keep weapons out of the hands of dangerous criminals and has fought for after-school programs that provide students a safe and constructive environment, keeping them out of trouble.

Please join me in supporting Pat O’Connor for Committeeman on March 15th.
