I have known Joan Padilla for many years in a professional capacity, as we both have served on the Sauk Valley Community College Board of Trustees. In this capacity, Joan served the public without compensation, and her only reward was in helping students achieve their dreams in academics and job training, all while serving the local taxpayers and their contributions to higher education.
I support her candidacy for Whiteside County recorder.
In her role as an elected trustee, Joan was dedicated, approachable and smart. She demonstrated her understanding of government in the college board room and in Washington, D.C., where she lobbied our elected federal representatives to bring funding to our community college.
Her personal credentials are just as impressive, as Joan has a genuine compassion for people and for lending a hand to those who need it most. Just meet her personally to know this is true.
The best endorsements are the most simple ones. Elect someone you can trust. Elect someone who will listen to you. Elect someone who has proved her dedication to the voting public. Elect Joan Padilla the next recorder.
