DEERFIELD – On Friday September 30th the Chicago Tribune released it endorsements for state senate races in Illinois. The Chicago Tribune Editorial Board endorsed Senator Julie Morrison for election to the 29th Legislative District.

“29th District: Incumbent Sen. Julie Morrison, D-Deerfield, has represented the district since 2013 and has proven to be an independent thinker,” wrote the editorial Board. “She launched and now chairs the Special Needs Caucus, a bipartisan group that focuses on the disabled community. She worked on legislation enabling government consolidation and creating more accountability at the Department of Children and Family Services. She voted against a local government mandate that would have tied the hands of mayors in contract negotiations with firefighters, splitting from her party.… She is endorsed.”

“I’m proud to receive this endorsement,” said Morrison. “I’m glad the Chicago Tribune recognized the way I work for my constituents. I’m dedicated to working across the aisle to solve our state’s problems, and my record speaks to that.”

Julie Morrison is running for State Senate in the 29th Legislative District. Morrison is a leader in the field of child welfare and a strong advocate of fiscal responsibility and ethical government.
