EMILY’s List Endorses Sheila Simon for Illinois Comptroller

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed Sheila Simon for Comptroller.

“Sheila Simon has spent her career fighting for Illinois women and families and championing open, honest, and fiscally-responsible government,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. “Her strong, common sense leadership will serve Illinois well as Comptroller, and EMILY’s List—now more than three million members strong—is proud to endorse her candidacy.”

Sheila Simon has served as the Lt. Governor of Illinois since 2011. Before that, she served on the Carbondale City Council and worked as an assistant state’s attorney known for strong action against DUIs and domestic violence. Having a reputation in advocating for open, ethical, and transparent government, she was selected for the Illinois Reform Commission, where she sought to limit contributions in state campaign finance law. As a professor at the Southern Illinois University School of Law, she helped establish the school’s first domestic violence clinic. She is a graduate of the Georgetown University Law Center.
