|Former candidate for|
|Illinois House of Representatives, District 40|
|Bachelor's||University of Illinois|
|J.D.||DePaul University College of Law|
Schiavone earned her Bachelor's in Speech Communication from the University of Illinois and her J.D. from the DePaul University College of Law. Her professional experience includes owning and working at her own law firm in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago.
Schiavone's campaign website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "As a mom of a 12-year old son who attends a Chicago Public School, I have seen first-hand what it is like to be a student and a teacher in the public schools right now, and it is tough. Illinois needs to re-invest in our state’s educational system – from early education to higher education."
Jobs and the Economy
- Excerpt: "Education helped me get where I am today but it did not come easy. I had to work hard and pay my own way through college and law school. With determination and resolve, I now own and operate my own law firm in Logan Square that provides good-paying jobs right here in our neighborhood. Yet, without access to high quality education I would have been left behind like so many students today. Education is our state’s silver bullet and its investment is the first step when addressing long-term job creation and economy in Illinois."
Restoring the Middle Class
- Excerpt: "Being raised by a single mother of four, I know how tough times can get and just how far a dollar can go. My mother was a Chicago Public Schools teacher. We did not have money for the extras in life – only what was necessary. Many residents in the 40th district face similar challenges every day. I am committed to supporting their interests in Springfield."
