Progressive Stalwart IL State Representative Will Guzzardi Endorses Amanda Howland for Congress
"Amanda Howland has spent her life fighting for a more just, equitable, and decent world. She took on Peter Roskam in 2016, when no one else thought it was possible. She's built an incredible organization in the 6th District, based on her dedication to a bold progressive vision of change. I support Amanda because she's got the best chance to win this seat, and because she'll be the kind of leader we need in Congress," said Illinois State Representative Will Guzzardi.
"I am proud today to receive the endorsement of one of the great progressive leaders in our state, Will Guzzardi. At the state level, Will has been a champion for a livable wage, tuition-free college and protecting public schools. As a former educator, I applaud his efforts to bring justice and equality to our education system. I am ready to take back our district from the devastating Trump-Roskam agenda," said Amanda Howland.
Amanda Howland is a two-term elected trustee at the College of Lake County. She is an attorney, former special education teacher and administrator, a 2011 graduate of Loretta Durbin's Illinois Women's Institute for Leadership, and cancer survivor. Amanda has lived in Lake Zurich with her husband for more than 20 years. Her law practice is devoted to mediation, civil rights, and employment law. She is a nationally ranked gymnastics judge, longtime member of the Sierra Club, and member of the Lake Zurich Area Chamber of Commerce.
