HunterRedFlagsCHICAGO – State Senator Mattie Hunter (D-Chicago) will serve as an Illinois ambassador in her new position of State Director to the Women in Government Foundation, Inc. The new role will help Hunter drive commerce and educational opportunities in the state.

“Bringing best practices, cutting-edge research and information back to Illinois can help us in our time of need,” said Hunter. “I’m looking forward to working with women legislators from across the nation to move our states forward.”
