Two Medical Organizations Endorse Ron Sandack

Sandack is a Republican candidate for state representative of the 81st House District.

The Illinois State Medical Society Political Action Committee (IMPAC) and the Illinois Society of Advanced Practice Nursing Association (ISAPN) have endorsed Ron Sandack for State Representative in the 81st House District. 

“Ron Sandack has an impressive political pedigree,” IMPAC wrote in a letter to medical professionals in the 81st House District, according to a campaign press release.

“Over the past year in Springfield, Ron Sandack has built a record of supporting physicians and our patients. He currently serves as the minority spokesperson on the Licensed Activities Committee. In that capacity he studies and votes on countless bills that regulate the practice of all healthcare professionals in the state of Illinois.” 

ISAPN also sent a letter in support of Ron Sandack, targeting nurses in the 81st district. “Ron has been a vital legislator for protecting the nursing community. As a member of the Licensed Activities Committee he has advocated on our behalf and defeated legislation that would have been detrimental to nurses inIllinois.”

“I’m thankful to both of these respected organizations for support, and I pledge to continue to support our medical professionals in Illinois,” Sandack said in the press release. “We must strengthen the doctor/patient relationship while enhancing patient safety and increasing access to quality care.”

Sandack began serving as a village commissioner for Downers Grove in 2003 and was elected mayor in 2007. He currently serves as a state senator for the 21st district, having been appointed last fall to replace Dan Cronin, who was elected DuPage County Board Chairman. 

Also running for the 81st District Republican nomination is , who currently serves as the vice president of the  school board. 

Including parts of Downers Grove, Darien, Lisle, , Westmont and Naperville, the 81st district constitutes half of the previous 47th district. Patricia Bellock, who currently serves the 47th district, has decided not to run for the 81st, so there is no incumbent candidate.

Don, I NEVER said that I don't understand the pension debate! Please re-read my post. I don't agree that someone's future should be hinged upon taxpayers who are also trying to secure their futures. Don't you agree that private institutions have to get the money from somewhere? Do you believe that they may make up for the loss of money due to these obligations by increasing prices for their goods and services? I would bet they don't just do it out of the kindness of their hearts. I agree that it is a contract and should not be broken. However, when you purchase a home you are making a contract with a bank/lender to purchase that home. Maybe you haven't noticed how many individuals (able to pay and not able to pay) walked away from their contracts!! I am not against meeting all the money/life sucking contracts made up to this point. I don't think that anymore should be made though. Take Bernie Madoff. He took money from people who were looking to invest in their futures with increased cash flow. Those people took a risk and it turned out bad, really, really, bad. Do you think you (taxpayer) should be on the hook for Bernie's bad behavior? Why should we (taxpayers) be on the hook for a state squandering the money they were entrusted to take care of for their contracts? Please continue to school me, Don. I anxiously await Pension 102!

http://www.dggab.com/images/forumo/teamsters.pdf Here's a fact that Ronnie boy "forgot" to tell the voters about back in March of 2007. It was real TRANSPARENT", He didn't want us all to know the Teamsters were supporting him. It wouldn't have been the way to start the Era of Time for Change.
