Senator Hutchinson Addresses Special Election

Senator Hutchinson Addresses Congressman Jackson's Resignation.

The Following is a Statement from State Senator Toi Hutchinson on the Special Election to Replace Congressman Jackson:

I want to thank Congressman Jackson for his past service.
As a long-time resident of the second Congressional District, where my husband and I have raised our three children, I believe we deserve a strong leader in Congress who will protect Social Security and Medicare and fight to bring new jobs.
Over the coming days, I’ll be speaking with my family, neighbors and community leaders, whom I’ve known and worked with for years, to explore a campaign for Congress. 
In the State Senate, I’ve fought for our schools and to make our communities safer by preventing sexual assault.  And in Springfield, I’ve always led by example, cutting my own pay and benefits. 
I’ll have more to say in the coming days.  I wish our families a happy Thanksgiving and pray for those who are fighting for our country abroad and can not celebrate at home.

Juvenal, you must have A1 credit....The US government credit rating has just been down graded....get over it....find something positive to say... Your making it easy for people to know that ur clearly not voting for her, and thats ur choice of course...But, it would be wise to state information that is important to the D2 Base...

It doesn't matter what Juvenal's credit is or if the US has been downgraded. Nice try at a red herring Q. Take a look at the totals for those CC. Almost $13K in charges. And she had to be taken to court instead of working out the payment details with those two companies (which means she ignored them). In this day more companies do credit checks on employees before they hire them because that number reflects fiscal responsibility. But not the government or voters. This information, Q, is important.

State Senator Toi Hutchinson, you write, "In the State Senate, I’ve fought for our schools and to make our communities safer by preventing sexual assault." How in the world do YOU make our community safer by preventing sexual assaults?? I mean, do you actually run around and prevent them, super-hero style?? Through legislation?? I know the pen is mightier than the sword, but c'mon Toi, that's just a little too self-serving and disingenuous...
