There is no one that cares about our world and it's progress like Rachel. I've never met a more dedicated mother, worker, or friend. Her political motivations are genuine, and her ultimate goal is to represent those around her with passion, care, and knowledge. Having known her as an educator, fellow Navy spouse, and local representative for our military and neighborhood community, I cannot imagine a better candidate!

Rachel Ventura is the most outgoing individual I have met in my entire life. When Rachel puts her mind to something she will make it happen no matter how long it takes. She has raised her two girls to be the next generation of positive change we need so badly in this world; both girls are intelligent (gifted actually), polite, and caring individuals. Rachel will make positive change happen and is skilled at managing businesses, networking, customer service, basically anything you can throw at Rachel, she can take it!

I don't live in Illinois anymore, the navy took me on a bit of a roundabout path before landing where I am now, but for those who do, I urge you to give Rachel a hard look. I've known her for a while and here's my honest take on her: She's a genuine person who doesn't hesitate to speak her opinion, even if its a minority one. Like all of us, she has had hard times, so she knows what its like to be in those situations, and not just because of some news report or city demographics, but because she's actually lived it. When she voices her opinion on a topic, you can bet its something she honestly feels strongly about. I've never known her to pander to ANYONE. Beyond that, it's my humble opinion that politics could use more genuine, intelligent, and passionate women in its ranks. Rachel Ventura is exactly that.

Rachel was my first boss after I graduated from college. I appreciated her for taking the time to invest in me and teach me so many new things but I admired her for standing up for me when it mattered the most. There are times when some people allow the differences between us that cannot be changed to influence what they think of someone and how they treat someone. When this happened to me in the workplace Rachel supported me and stood up for me. She had my back despite what it meant for her own security in her role. That is the kind of person you want to represent you; someone who is not afraid to speak up when they witness things that are In conflict with their values and moral compass no matter how difficult it might be. Someone who is selfless and willing to challenge authority for even the person with the least amount of "clout". That's Rachel. If you live in Joliet, I hope that you will vote for her.
Change is difficult for every community to obtain. I believe that Rachel Ventura has the qualities to lead us into a better tomorrow. Please join the ranks at the polls - vote for Rachel!
In the decade I have known Rachel, she has demonstrated her focus, dedication, honesty, passion, commitment, intelligence, and passion for what is right and good in the world. A natural leader and fantastic team player, Rachel is someone I am proud to call a friend.
I am posting on Rachel Ventura's page for two very simple reasons; I believe in Rachel as person. She has the heart, the intelligence and certainly the moral character do what is good and right. I am also posting this because I know the people that feel threatened by her are the same people that are unwilling or unable to do what is good for the people of Joliet. They are not who among those who look out for those in need, those whose lives have been harmed by policies designed only to benefit a few, instead of everyone. She is without a doubt someone that is unwilling to stand by and let social, economic, and other forms of injustice stand. She is a fighter, she is a warrior for positive change.

With her diverse skill set and keen intellect, her time in office will serve the citizens well for years to come. Don't waste any of that time. Elect Rachel Ventura now!
I grew up in the district Rachel Ventura aims to represent. The area has come a long way, but it faces some serious challenges. People are struggling, and they need a government that works for them - not big special interests. That’s why I support Rachel Ventura. She isn’t some wealthy person separated from reality - she is one of us normal people working our butts off trying to put food on the table and make the world a little bit better. She will actually educate herself on issues, and you can count on her to vote in our community’s best interests. Always. That is why I am willing to cross party lines and support Rachel Ventura for US Congress.
