Skillicorn to officially seek 66th State House seat

Erin Sauder | The Courier News

In May, East Dundee Trustee Allen Skillicorn said he was “exploring a run” for the 66th State House Seat.

During a gathering Thursday night at Bandito Barney’s, Skillicorn said he is officially throwing his hat in the ring, making the March Republican primary a four-way race.

This summer, current State Rep. Mike Tryon, who has served in the Illinois House of Representatives since January of 2005, announced he will retire in 2016.

The 66th State House District includes parts of Algonquin, Crystal Lake, East and West Dundee, Elgin, Gilberts, Huntley, Lake in the Hills, Lakewood and Sleepy Hollow.

“There’s a lot of talk in the 66th District about lower taxes, fiscal responsibility, and who’s ‘the real Republican,'” Skillicorn said to attendees Thursday. “I appreciate the discourse on these issues which are near and dear to my heart, but the state of Illinois needs more doers, not talkers.”
