    The Candidate: Sue Scherer

    The Race: Democratic Party Candidate for Illinois State Representative in the 96th District

    The Competition: Dennis Ross Shackelford

    The Buzz: Scherer has been a teacher for 32 years and believes her experience as an educator gives her a better understanding of the situation in her district. Scherer states on her campaign website that she is "not a politician" but rather a "wife, mother and educator" who is concerned with her district's inability to solve the state's problems.

    If elected, she wants to bring "common sense" to the legislature by working across party lines to improve public safety and schools, restore fiscal balance, and create and retain jobs.
