Lake County Republican Federation Congratulates Leslie Munger on her Appointment As State Comptroller
The Lake County Republican Federation was pleased to learn yesterday that Lincolnshire resident Leslie Munger, the Republican nominee in the 59th State Representative race last November, was selected by Governor-Elect Bruce Rauner to fill the State Comptroller vacancy due to the sudden passing of Judy Baar Topinka.
“The Federation applauds Governor-Elect Rauner’s choice of Leslie Munger as the next Illinois Comptroller,” said Federation President Larry Falbe.
“Having personally campaigned for Leslie in her recent State Representative race, I can say with certainty that Leslie will work tirelessly with Governor Rauner to bring back Illinois and restore fiscal discipline and sanity to the finances of this great state. She is dynamite.”
Leslie Munger brings years of business and community leadership experience to the Comptroller’s office. A graduate of the University of Illinois, Leslie Munger earned an MBA from Northwestern and ended her business career as brand manager at Helene Curtis. In 2004, Munger was named Lincolnshire Citizen of the Year after years of involvement in many community, political, and parent organizations.
Munger will be sworn in on January 12th, after Rauner is sworn in as governor. Jerry Stermer, who was appointed to complete Topinka’s current term, already announced he will resign on the 12th.
