EVANSTON – Democratic State Senator and former gubernatorial candidate Daniel Biss yesterday announced his endorsement of Nancy Zettler in the race for Illinois’ 33rd State Senate district—an area running from Batavia to Crystal Lake and from East Dundee to Hampshire.
“Nancy Zettler has spent her career working for ordinary people,” said State Senator Daniel Biss. “She’s been a passionate advocate for local schools and has taken on powerful special interests like the ones corrupting Springfield. We need a voice like Nancy’s who will clean up Springfield and work to bring down out of control property taxes and protect middle class families—that’s why she has my support.”
“I’m honored to have the support of a progressive icon like Daniel Biss, who has been fighting for working families his entire career. From his first campaign to the most recent one, Daniel has been an advocate for fairer taxes, expanding access to healthcare, making college more affordable and protecting seniors in retirement,” said Nancy Zettler. “It is wonderful to have the support of Sen. Biss and so many other groups and individuals committed to making Illinois a better, more equitable place to live for all.”
“Our campaign is about putting people first,” Nancy Zettler said. “Every day we speak to voters up and down district 33 who want someone in Springfield who will fight for working families, not cater to career politicians and powerful special interests. I am honored to have the support of local leaders and excited to make significant strides in every community across the district.”
Senator Biss’ endorsement adds more momentum to Zettler’s surging campaign. Over the last two months, Zettler has earned the support of more than 25 elected officials and organizations, including congressional candidate Lauren Underwood, Senate President John Cullerton, State Senator Christina Castro, State Senator Tony Munoz, State Representative Anna Moeller, Dundee Township Supervisor Trish Glees, Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association, Illinois AFL-CIO, Illinois Federation of Teachers, Illinois Education Association, AFSCME Illinois Council, National Organization for Women, Planned Parenthood, Personal PAC, Equality Illinois, Sierra Club, Citizens Action, Moms Demand Action (Distinction), G PAC, LiUNA, Illinois SEIU, Teamsters Joint Council 25, McHenry County Building Trades Council, Elgin Building Trades Council, and the Elgin Association of Fire Fighters IAFF Local 439.
