Experience

Biography

I am a lifelong resident of Joliet. I am married to Lora McDonald McGuire, who grew up two houses from the I&M towpath in Channahon, taught nursing for nearly three decades at Joliet Junior College, and continues to do much great work in pain management, health care access, and domestic violence prevention. Our daughter, Molly, attended Joliet public schools, graduated from St. Mary's College in Notre Dame, IN, and lives in Los Angeles.

 

I taught English in public and private high schools and worked in Joliet Junior College's Student Support Services TRIO program assisting low-income, first-generation, and special-needs students.

 

The elective offices I have held are Joliet Township High School District 204 Board of Education (1993-2006), Will County Treasurer (2006-2010), and District 43 Illinois State Senator (2012-present).
