Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Strengthen the middle class by reforming the tax code and bringing jobs back from foreign countries. Our current tax system favors those individuals and corporations wealthy enough to exploit its loopholes
  • Protecting Social Security for future generations
  • Reduce secondary education costs and reform student loans

Amanda Howland is an elected community college trustee, former Chairman of the College of Lake County board, an attorney, and a pragmatic progressive candidate for the United States House of Representatives from the Sixth District of Illinois in 2016.

Amanda has lived in Lake Zurich for more than 20 years. She began her career teaching behavior-disordered teens, initially at Allendale School for Boys, a residential facility in Lake Villa. She moved on to North Junior High (now Bernotas Junior High) in Crystal Lake while working on her Master’s degree in administration. She was hired by U-46 and became an administrator in the largest elementary school in the district (1400 students in Bartlett, K-6). Along the way, building on her own competitive experience as a teen, she became a nationally ranked gymnastics judge, who still officiates at tournaments in the district and throughout Northern Illinois.

As a school administrator, Amanda became fascinated by the legal issues in education and decided to attend law school. As a result, she is still paying off student loans and so understands the burdens faced by students and their families who know that education is the key to success. As a current College of Lake County trustee, she has witnessed the struggles that students go through to afford college and believes that all students should be able to have access to college education.

Amanda's law practice is devoted to protecting the rights of people in both civil rights cases and employment law. She has a great deal of experience negotiating fair settlements and is eager to take that experience to Congress to keep fighting for a fair shake for the middle class. It's time to get to work and get the people's business done.
