The American Dream
Springfield,..Ravi Singh arrived back in the 42nd district today from Springfield after having filed his petition of candidacy for State Representative. Singh lined up at 6 a.m. for the opening of the State Board of Elections. "Now we've made it official," Singh said, as he emerged from the State Board of Elections. "I arrived here before many other candidates in the hope that my name will be the top one on the ballot. I want people to know that I'm serious about being a public servant, providing leadership and restoring prestige to the office of State Representative in this district. Now it's back home and into the precincts for more campaigning." Ravi Singh is the youngest person to ever run for State Representative in the 42nd district. If elected he will make history by becoming the only Asian-American to ever serve as a State or Federal Legislator from Illinois. "It all comes down to hard work, reaching out, listening, and having faith…that's pursing the American Dream," said Ravi Singh.
