Interview: Rep. McDermed Talks Time in Office as She Prepares to Retire

State Representative Margo McDermed, who chose not to seek re-election in 2020 recently spoke with the Herald News about her time in state office:

“When asked to point to her most significant achievements as a member of the Illinois Senate, McDermed touted her work to enhance the state’s tracking system for evidence related to a sexual assault.

“I think that was a really good bill and we’re seeing some good results from it,” she said.

She also highlighted the nearly $1 billion included in last year’s massive capital bill to pay for improvements on a large stretch of Interstate 80 spanning much of Will County.

Despite the challenges, McDermed said she has most enjoyed getting to engage and help her constituents. She said connecting with them has been the most rewarding part of her time in Springfield.”
