Equity: The Longest-Serving Woman In The State Senate

Mar 8, 2016

  Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno of Lemont has been in the state Senate longer than any other woman and is the longest-serving GOP woman lawmaker in the state. Radogno was a stay-at-home parent when she first got into politics. She says it started with a debate over a fire house in her hometown. Maureen McKinney interviewed Radogno because March is Women’s History Month.
