Homewood Hearing Center FS May 1-31 2019

Four candidates for the 40th Illinois Senate seat introduced themselves at a forum hosted by the Park Forest League of Women Voters on Saturday, Feb. 29.

The Democratic candidates in the March 17 primary race are: Monica Gordon of Flossmoor; Marta Perales of Momence; Lori Wilcox of Chicago Heights and Patrick Joyce of Essex.  

Joyce currently holds the seat after being appointed by Democratic committeemen following Toi Hutchinson’s resignation from the position to be Illinois’ “pot czar” dealing with the legalization of cannabis sales in Illinois.

The winner in the November . . .
