FROM SEN. STADELMAN’S FACEBOOK PAGE, JUNE 12, 2019, 4:35pm
It was my privilege today to present to Jo Minor and Claire McIntyre a Senate proclamation marking the 100th anniversary of Illinois ratifying the 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote. Illinois, along with Wisconsin and Michigan, were the first states in the nation to grant women suffrage. Congratulations to Jo for recently assuming the presidency of the League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford from Claire and thank you to Claire for her service!
Note: Patricia Stadelman, the Senator’s wife is a member of the League.
