TRIBUNE ENDORSES SKILLICORN FOR THE ILLINOIS HOUSE

PROUDLY ENDORSED BY THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE:

66th District: Our first question to the four candidates running for this House seat: Anyone play guitar? Because someone might have to fill in for retiring Rep. Mike Tryon, R-Crystal Lake, member of the Boat Drink Caucus, a band made up of several lawmakers. Tryon announced last year he would not seek another term. Four Republicans are vying to replace him: Lakewood trustee Paul Serwatka, West Dundee trustee Dan Wilbrandt, East Dundee trustee Allen Skillicorn and McHenry County Board member Carolyn Schofield of Crystal Lake.

 

 

In this race, our nod goes to Skillicorn, a marketing professional who is the most outspoken about the need to blow up the status quo in Springfield. Locally, he led the charge to freeze the property tax levy and has been a cheerleader of Rauner’s agenda. We’d like to see Skillicorn make his own mark. We’re confident he will. Skillicorn is endorsed.
