(Not sure which District is which?  Here’s a map.)

Over the next 15 years, the number of Illinoisans 65 and older will increase by nearly 60%. As our state ages, and the power of the senior vote grows, candidates must answer to the issues that matter to us.

  • Pensions and economic security.
  • Dignity & independence in long-term care.
  • Fully-funded quality of life services and supports.

Together, we will be heard in 2018!
