Candidate Spotlight: Steve Stadelman for State Senate 34th District

Steve Stadelman 
Illinois Senate, 34th District 

Steve Stadelman is 100% pro-choice and he has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood Illinois Action.

Issues: Jobs and Job Training, Education, Transportation Infrastructure, and Supporting Small Businesses

Biography: After 25 years as a Television Journalist in Rockford, many people are asking me why I’m running for State Senate.

“Why would you go into politics?” is the question I hear from many of you who are frustrated and disillusioned with the direction of the State of Illinois and Rockford area.

Your frustration is the reason I decided to get involved. As someone who’s been outside the political process, I understand the need for candidates who bring a fresh perspective to State Government.

I grew up on a small dairy farm. Because of financial difficulties faced by many family farmers, my father lost his business. Money was tight. After several months of unemployment, my father got a job in a factory. I later went to college with grants and loans.

Those experiences are why I’m running as a Democrat in the 34th District. I’ll fight for the middle class and the working men and women.

My top priorities are jobs and education. I believe they go together. We need to do a better job of putting people back to work and preparing our students for careers and college. My four children go to Rockford Public Schools. I have a direct stake in making sure all students get a quality education.

As a journalist, I’ve been a force for change. With your help, we can change the direction of our state and our community.

While I'm glad stadelman supports choice, it is very hard to determine what his position on other issues might be.
Maybe he supports choice if it's paid for by private insurance but not govt. funds.?
