Cardiss Collins was one of the strongest, most dedicated public servants in Illinois history. She inspired generations with her never-ending fight for consumers and unmatched commitment to her constituents on the West Side of Chicago. Cardiss Collins was a trailblazer. She was the first African-American woman to represent the state of Illinois in Congress and one of the longest-serving women in Congressional history. In addition to being a leading national voice, she was a dedicated mother and, prior to her time as an elected official, a hard-working state employee. Cardiss Collins is a legend in our state. She will be greatly missed.

Gov. Pat Quinn
