“Joan believes in finding solutions to our nation’s problems, because she is results-oriented. She has worked within her community to help those who are struggling – to positively impact people’s lives. Her willingness to bridge differences and bring people together has made her effective in her community. I am happy to endorse Joan McCarthy Lasonde for Illinois’ 9th Congressional District.”  ~Paul Ryan, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives

“Joan Lasonde is the rare political candidate who was a pillar of her community before entering the political arena. She has found business success locally and internationally creating opportunities for others in so doing. She has lived a life of service to others while raising a beautiful family. 

“Lasonde represents a refreshing change in attitude to the political ruling class of professional politicians who rule rather than represent.

“Lasonde is a principled fiscal watchdog who will make sure tax dollars are spent to advance the interests of her 9th District constituents and assist vulnerable persons, like those with disabilities, who are truly in need.

“She is a thoughtful, cheerful, engaging leader who dispenses with partisan labels in pursuit of aligning the federal government with the interests of 9th District families.” ~Dan Proft, Radio Talk Show Host

“I met Joan through her work at the Illinois State Crime Commission and while working on our campaigns.

“You will not find a more qualified, dedicated, and hard working candidate than Joan. Throughout her professional career and personal life, she has consistently given back to her community in many ways.

“Joan is not a “politics as usual” candidate and would truly make a difference for the citizens of her district.

She is a bright and up and coming star that would be a welcome addition to Washington. I am honored to endorse Joan McCarthy Lasonde for Congress.” ~David Studenroth, Candidate for Judge
