"When Sara announced she was interested in moving to the State Senate, Yoni reached out and said he was interested in running for Sara's seat. I was instantly on board. Why? Because he would be a superb Representative for the 12th District."
"I have known Yoni and his husband Brad for many years. In fact, Yoni and Brad are my kids’ g-dfathers. Yoni is a smart, compassionate, dedicated person, who understands how to build relationships and get things done."
"We made great strides in Springfield this year, but there is still much more to do. We need people like Yoni in the legislature to deal with issues of equality, access to quality healthcare, gun safety, and environmental protection."
