I've had a couple of opportunities to meet Illinois 17th District Congressional Candidate Dave Koehler in the past month. He represents three counties in the State Senate, and owns the Peoria Bread Company with his wife, Nora Sullivan, a nurse and teacher at Methodist College of Nursing in Peoria. Dave has worked as a part-time United Church of Christ minister, a vocation he took on under the influence of his father, who was also a minister. He was the director of the Labor-Management Council, and is so well-respected from his work there that he has the endorsements of many business people and labor unions.
