Greenberg Announces Key Staff
MUNDELEIN—Entrepreneur and political outsider Steve Greenberg is assembling a winning campaign team that blends the youth, experience and talent necessary to defeat Melissa Bean in the 8th Congressional District in Illinois.
In recent weeks, Greenberg, a Republican, hired one of Illinois’ top fundraisers, top communications experts, as well as a respected political operative as his campaign manager.
The Greenberg campaign team includes:
Brad Goodman, Campaign Manager. A respected, aggressive veteran of a half-dozen House and Senate races, Goodman brings local knowledge to the race as a Lake County native. During the 2006 primary campaign, Goodman worked as Political Director for Kathy Salvi’s Congressional race and during the general election he served as a political aide to then-House Speaker Dennis Hastert. He also is a former intern in the White House Office of Political Affairs.
Lori Montana, Finance Director. Montana is recognized as one of the best fundraisers in the Midwest. She’s raised money for numerous top GOP candidates in Illinois including Governor Jim Edgar. She also is former director of the Illinois Lottery and was the longest serving director in agency history.
Dan Curry, Communications Director. Curry is one of the most experienced and respected communications strategists in Illinois. He served as Communications Director for U.S. Senator Peter Fitzgerald and Press Secretary for Illinois Attorney General Jim Ryan and is a former political/investigative reporter with the Daily Herald.
“I understand it is going to take a strong team effort to defeat Washington insider Melissa Bean and all her special interest money,” Greenberg said. “I’m pleased to have Brad, Lori and Dan in place to build a campaign that will be up to the task ahead.”
Steve Greenberg is considered nationally one of the top newcomers to challenge for a House seat. The 36-year-old successful businessman, entrepreneur, and professional hockey player brings passion and energy to the race. He lives in Long Grove with his wife and three children. He is a forceful advocate of low taxes, making government more efficient and a strong national defense. He believes the people of the 8th District deserve representation that focuses on their needs, not those of the Washington political class.
