ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The Illinois Retired Teachers Association Political Action committee has endorsed State Senator Dave Syverson.
The committee's board of directors and the IRTA legislative committee sent out a questionnaire to candidates to help decide who they would support. The organization says they were impressed by Syverson's knowledge and positions on the issues that affect Illinois retired teachers.
"The senator has been very supportive throughout his career in the state senate and by his answers on the questionnaire that we received back; we were excited and proud that he was going to continue to be a supporter." said Executive Director James Bachman.
The Illinois Retired Teachers association represents 33-thousand retired educators across the state.
