"Victor Swanson reminds me what a vital democracy looks like: when corporate interests have persuaded politicians to adopt positions adverse to the well-being of their constituents, Victor Swanson, a social studies teacher, decides that a post or a tweet is not enough to fight back. He's running for U.S. Congress for one reason: to help restore what our founding fathers always intended: the protection of people's well-being, their health and security, instead of the interests of those who seek to exploit us."  Jake Novak, Deer Park, IL

"Mr. Swanson represents a progressive alternative to Congressman Hultgren, something very much needed."  Progressive Retired Educators of Kane County 

"Mr. Victor (Swany) Swanson prominently impacted my life during my adolescence. I had the privilege of learning from Swany through the roles of a student, an athlete, and a mentee. Victor has a contagious passion for serving students that has had a profound ripple effect throughout the life trajectory of the students whom he has taught, and also throughout the culture of Glenbard East High School. Victor has an ability to establish a meaningful rapport with students with the ultimate goal of assuring that the needs of his students (and hopefully future constituents) are being met. It was truly a pleasure to learn from Victor during my time as a student at East.

Additionally, Victor taught me formidable life lessons, which I carry with me to this day. Unfortunately, during high school my father passed away. During that difficult time, Victor made an extraordinary effort to connect with me and assure that I was grieving in a healthy manner. During one conversation on the bleachers at East, Victor spoke to me about the relationship he had with his grandparent who had also passed away. I look back that this small but incredibly meaningful conversation as a pivotal moment in my adolescence. To know that another adult at school who was not a family member, cared deeply about my social and emotional functioning was monumental in allowing me to learn about trust and vulnerability within humanity. Victor, in that moment, taught me the lesson of being wiling to speak up and lay your vulnerability on the line, as to gain respect, trust, and show others that you deeply care for their wellbeing.

In the current political atmosphere, Victor has the character, compassion, but respectful determination to lay it all on the line for his constituents and the future of our country, just as he does day in and out for his students and their futures."  Bridget Looby Mazzone

"Character and integrity are qualities that are always in high demand.  By living a life dedicated to service, Victor Swanson meets and exceeds those demands through his commitment toward helping and inspiring others."  Anthony Bartolotta

"Victor Swanson has always shown that he is one of a kind. Whether it be in a personal or professional setting, Swanson always shows care and compassion for the issues at hand. Never have I seen a negative connotation from him, and I would vouch on any occasion for his outstanding character and community leadership. There would be no one better to be elected to Congress!" Jacki Abdul
