Elected school board heads for the Illinois House floor.

Talk to your legislators. Now is the time!

Word from 39th State Representative Will Guzzardi:

Today’s a day I’ve been working toward — with so many others of you — for four years:

The bill for an elected Chicago Board of Education will be called on the House floor.

Enormous credit to State Representative Robert Martwick for his leadership on this bill, and to all the community leaders who collected signatures, contacted voters, organized actions, and built the grassroots support to make this day possible.

If, as expected, it passes in the House, it must still pass the state Senate and get the Governor’s signature.

Phone calls now would be a good thing.
