Illinois State House District 56 issued the following announcement on Feb. 10
I would like to extend my sincere gratitude for being the recipient of the the Asian American Coalition of Chicago: Grand Asian American Sandra Otaka Award, this past weekend. This award is given to public officials, of non-Asian descent, in recognition of their contribution to the Asian American community. It has been a true joy to be able to give back to the many friends of different cultures, who make up our community, and who have graciously included me and supported me all the years I have been able to serve as Representative. I am honored by the consideration and look forward to many future collaborations!
