Karen McConnaughay Picks Up $10,000 from Education Group, $5,000 from Illinois Manufacturers Assoc., Allicott Co. & Ron Gidwitz
It takes a lot of $25 contributors to equal the checks that State Senate candidate Karen McConnaughay has received recently.
$10,000 came from the Stand Up for Children PAC Illinois, a Political Action Committee based in Bill Gates’ Oregon, last Friday, the day of opponent Cliff Surges’ Lake in the Hills $25 fundraiser.
There were other donations in the last week over $1,000, too:
- $10,000 – Stand For Children Illinois PAC, Portland, OR
- $5,000 – Allicott Company, Chicago
- $5,000 – Illinois Manufacturers Association,
- $5,000 – Ronald Gidwitz, Chicago
- $2,500 – Carol Boose, St. Charles
- $2,000 – Illinois State Medical Society PAC, Chicago
- $1,500 – Credit Union PAC, Naperville
- $1,250 – Margaret Parker, Administration, Elgin Community College, St. Charles
- $1,000 – Michael Bertsche, President, Camcraft, West Chicago
- $1,000 – Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce PAC, Chicago
All of the above contributions of more than $1,000 came during February.
In contrast, here’s what Cliff Surges got in big money:
- $5,000 John Roeser, Engineer, Otto Engineering, Inc, Barrington
- $2,500 – Roy Surges, Jr, Enterprise Sales Executive, Allscript, St Charles
