On Tuesday January 8, State Senator Mike Noland endorsed
Democrat John Laesch for Congress in Illinois’ 14th district.
Noland’s 22nd District is in the northern part of the 14th Congressional District.
“Clear eyed and direct on the issues,” said Noland of Laesch,
“his positions on the need for health care reform, a new energy policy, and dogged persistence in general are just a few reasons why we need him now.”
“Senator Noland’s endorsement gives our campaign a tremendous boost as we head towards the February 5th Democratic Primary Election,” said Laesch.
“I have worked closely with Mike and, like his constituents, I respect his persistent leadership. I look forward to working with Senator Noland and all of the elected officials, local and state, to address issues like traffic congestion in Northern Kane County, affordable healthcare and economic opportunity.”
ust before we took a little breather for the Holidays the UAW region 4 announced that after a very involved and lengthy evaluation process of all the Democratic candidates, John Laesch, was the candidate that they believe will best represent their membership. John Laesch will be a leader on healthcare, workers rights, and fair trade policies.
John Laesch is proud to stand and speak for the issues that most affect the his union Brothers and sisters. He knows what it is like to get up everyday and go to work and understands the issues facing the working men and women of the district and even the country.
On Friday, December, 14, John attended a breakfast hosted by the Fox Valley Chambers of Commerce. All the primary candidates for the 14 th Congressional District were invited to discuss the important issues in this election. This was the first time candidates from both parties were on the same stage for discussion and debate. The give and take was lively and informative.
John is a strong advocate for fair trade policy and single payer health care. He explained how these two initiatives were good for business, as fair trade will help bring good paying jobs back to the 14th District, and universal health care will provide relief from skyrocketing costs for both small and large businesses. He conveyed his belief that when we work together to strengthen the middle class, everyone prospers.
