Wilson runs for state senate again
Marla Wilson announced Oct. 13 her candidacy for Illinois Senate in the 34th District.
Less than a year ago, in November’s general election, Wilson received 47 percent of the vote against an 18-year incumbent Republican in the toughest year for Democrats in decades, proving that she is the strongest Democratic Senate candidate in this district.
Wilson says: “Those previous election results strengthen my candidacy for the Illinois Senate in our 34th District, but so do the issues that my campaign is built upon. My campaign strengths are and will be built on three issues: 1. Setting and adhering to term limits: 2. Lowering legislative pay and 3. Investing in green collar jobs to bring secure, high-paying jobs to our community.”
Wilson’s small business continues to thrive today because it is built on 19 years of integrity and excellent service. She continues, “As your state senator, those same two personal qualities, as well as many others will describe me in that office. Integrity and excellent service with no expectation of personal gain are what I demonstrated and continue to demonstrate as a community volunteer and organizer. I care for our community. I serve in our community because it is the right thing to do.”
Marla Wilson is a small business owner, community volunteer and organizer and marathon runner. She has been married to her husband, Eric, for 12 years and has a 9-year-old daughter, Allison.
