Kane County State Senator Chris Lauzen hasn’t decided what he is going to run for yet, but he’s running for something.
Will it be for re-election to the Illinois State Senate, where he has served almost twenty years?
He represents Kane County all the way up to the McHenry County line currently with the biggest concentration of people being in the heavily voting Sun City in Huntley.
Will Lauzen run for the Kane County Board Chairmanship, which is elected at-large (unlike in McHenry and Lake Counties)?
Will it be for Congress, a post for which he sought a GOP nomination previously when U.S. House Speaker Denny Hastert retired in mid-term, but lost to Jim Oberweis, who then lost to Democrat Bill Foster?
In any event, Lauzen’s Porky Picnic will be held Saturday afternoon at Blackberry Farm in Aurora.
This is a big event.
I expect petty much any candidate who wants to court conservative voters to be in attendance, so I’m going with camera in hand.
I always need a map to find the location at the intersection of Galena Boulevard and Barnes Road. You can click on the one included in the invitation and print it out.
The pork chops are excellent. You can see the whole invitation, including the $30 price tag ($50 per couple). There are even rides for kids at this amusement park.
Another interesting feature of the invitation is a list of major donors from the year before:
