Good morning friends! How are you?
I did this drawing while attending a reception for Illinois senator Gary Forby. He is a huge supporter of teachers and Matt often works with him in his position at the IEA. We marched with him in the Duqoin State Fair parade on Friday as well. It was great to meet him - he's very personable and fun. We also heard John Cullerton, president of the Illinois senate speak last night in support of Gary. I've been enjoying learning more about southern Illinois politics and like how close we can get to the action here. I'm also proud to report that we live in a district represented by a Democratic senator and 2 Democratic representatives!
