Sandoval Speaking CHICAGO- Area residents had a chance to sit down face-to-face and talk about their concerns with Senator Martin Sandoval (D-Chicago).

Illinois is trying to get out of a $6 billion dollar deficient that has put education, public safety, social services and other services at risk. Sandoval's main goal was to listen and get a better understanding on how the cuts impacted residents and to offer solutions.

"As a senator, It's my job to not only talk about what I want to change, but to also actively go to the different businesses and neighborhoods to hear from the people living there what they need improved," Sandoval said.

Earlier this week, Sandoval visited community groups, businesses and residents within different neighborhoods -- Gage Park, Brighton Park, McKinley Park, Garfield Ridge and the Southwest side of Chicago -- to get their feedback on social services, economic development, education, jobs and public safety.

Sandoval rideshare cmteSPRINGFIELD- After reflecting on Gov. Bruce Rauner's 2015 state of the state address, State Sen. Martin Sandoval (D-Chicago) had the following words to say:

150 years ago, a tall, self-made white man from Springfield called on the General Assembly to protect the rights of minorities by abolishing slavery and ratifying the 13th Amendment.

Last week, another tall, self-made white man who lives in Springfield called on the General Assembly to remove institutional barriers facing racial minorities.

He called for greater inclusion in trade unions, specifically noting the lack of racial minorities in apprenticeship programs.

He called for a 25 percent reduction in the prison population (overwhelmingly filled with racial minorities).

He pledged to invest in minority businesses and insist that government contractors work with minority entrepreneurs.

This man's name wasn't Abraham. His name is Bruce. And his sincere commitment to racial minorities should be acknowledged and celebrated.
