E Pluribus Unum = Out of the Many, One.

Happy Independence Day, Thank You to Our Service Women and Men

Evanston, IL, July 4th, 2018 –  Joan McCarthy Lasonde, candidate for the State Senate, wishes all a happy and healthy Fourth of July.  Joan, who is walking in several local area parades today stated, “Most important today is to thank our service women and men, both veterans and active duty, for their dedication and service, including the all too many who gave their lives so that we enjoy the freedoms we do.  We must also celebrate their families, for when one serves, the family serves.”

Joan stated, “Our country’s motto is:  E Pluribus Unum.  Translated from Latin it reads:  Out of many, one.” At the time, our thirteen colonies joined together to become a single nation.  I think it is a good reminder these days that we can, and should, all come together and work together for the better good. Now more than ever we need our political leaders to put partisan politics aside and reach across the aisle to work with each other.  First and foremost we are all neighbors and we all want a better Illinois.”

Joan closed by saying, “Be safe and enjoy the 4th, for we really do live in the greatest country, and we have all our Veterans to thank for this.”
