It’s been a good day! Congrats Senator Rob Martwick!
We won! After going to bed with a 27 vote lead on election night, the Vote-By-Mail returns have come in as expected. Our lead has grown to 5,354 votes and we expect that margin to grow as more ballots are counted. Today, my opponent called and conceded the race. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work on the critical issues that our state and community face. I am thrilled that I will have a talented and committed partner in those efforts with Rep. Lindsey LaPointe. I have so many people to thank. First and foremost, I am the worlds luckiest person, to be loved and supported by my wonderful wife, Sharon Martwick, my parents and my sisters, brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews, some of which went above and beyond. I had a fantastic campaign staff, Tyler Dixon, Alexandra Sobor, John Riordan, and campaign mom Kerrie Avino. I am eternally grateful for the work of the 38th Ward and Norwood Park Township Democratic Organizations. Thank you Frank Avino, David M. Feller, Ed Bannon, Jacob Kaplan, Paul Alongi, Joe Alongi, Dan Pogorzelski, JC Strzalka-Steil, Kieran Fitzgerald, Susan Zimny, Stephanie Lieberman, Dawn Parent, Tasos Foukas, Tony Guida, Seamus Glynn, Ethan Brady, Craig Fallico, Jennifer Guerrero, William Collins, and Vittorio Verrechio. Thank you to our super crew of volunteers, Dorothy Frantz, Jen Jones, Judy Kehoe, Georgette Foss, Mary Claire Peceny, Yvonne Wesley, Ben Whipple, Danny Aviles, James O'Brien, Don Richie, Andrew Tonachel, Matthew Cox, Casey Smagala, Leanne, Gehrig, Quenton Galvin, Yolanda and Bob Simonsis, Paula Guilianao, Barb Bonnello, Michael Rabbit, Kelly Carroll, Emily Melbye, Jill Arena, Suzy Jackson, Catherine Colombo, Katie Smith, Kamil Mozwecz, Steve McKenzie, Mary Shapiro, Mark Dobrzycki, Robert Zwolinski, Scott Parent, Lynn Taormina, Annette Baase, Kathy Ryg, Ray Sanders, and all that helped in some small way. I promise I will always work hard and do my best to represent the 10th District. Time to celebrate!
