2010 Elections Wrap Up – How did NASW endorsed candidates perform

The first elections of the first decade of the 21st are now history. And if you on the NASW PAC Illinois website, then you probably  spent the evening channel surfing or website surfing to find the latest results, or to catch the latest pundit pontificate on this very expensive and volatile election.  Or maybe you spent your day knocking on doors for the candidate of your choice.  That was how I spent my day, along with Kyle Hillman canvassing for NASW PAC Illinois endorsed candidate for the Illinois State House of Representatives Daniel Biss.  There is something so simple yet empowering about reminding people to vote.  It also reinforces Standard 6.04 of our Code of Ethics regarding Social and Political Action – namely that “social workers should engage in social and political action that seeks to ensure that all people have equal access to the resources, employment, services and opportunities they require to meet their basic human needs and to develop fully.”  This feeling of empowerment is no different than the first election I worked on in 1976 as a high school senior working for independent Democrat Congressman Abner Mikva.  Although as you can see from this dated photo in the following link,  this writer is considerably older and not as thin! http://www.dailynewschicago.com/lincolnwood/?currentPage=3
