CHICAGO-- Andy Manar received an endorsement from Citizen Action’s State PAC, the Progressive Action Project in his bid for State Senate in Illinois 48th Senate District. Manar is running against Republican Mike McElroy for the seat being vacated by State Senator Thomas Johnson.
“Throughout his campaign, Andy has put a laser focus on issues related to expanding quality access to healthcare and protecting consumers and working families in Illinois,” said William McNary, co-director, Citizen Action/Illinois. Based on many of the public positions of his opponent, we believe that Andy represents the right choice in this race.”
“Now more than ever we need fierce advocates like Andy to fight for Illinoisans because working families, consumers, taxpayers and those who value justice and equality are under constant attack in statehouses around the nation and during the 2012 elections, we want to give them the power to fight back.”
