Elaine Nekrtitz is superb candidate running for State Rep in our community. She is smart, independent thinking and articulate. She has had the political courage to vote against rules put forth by Speaker Madigan that she thought should be changed and similarly had the courage to chair the Pension committee in an election year to try to tackle the biggest challenge facing our state. She may not have accomplished resolution yet but it does not take away from her hard work and dedication to try to bring people together to find a solution.
She is respected by Democrats and Republicans, and without question one of the hardest working and best legislators in Springfield. That is why even though she is not in my district I have knocked on doors for her, and I urge everyone in her district to get out and vote for this gem of a legislator.
