Two local public officials have been in the hospital with heart problems.
The most prominent is State Rep. Mike Tryon.
The other is long-time Lakewood Village Trustee Cargrl Davis.
Indications are that they are recovering.
Tryon’s hospitalization might explain why two Kane County men are angling for his spot in the Illinois House.
Tryon announced his intention to run for re-election, but that was before his trip to Centegra.
Yesterday, Tryon was listed as “Excused” on the House roll call.
East Dundee Trustee Dan Wilbrandt filed a campaign disclosure form with the Illinois State Board of Elections stating explicitly that he was seeking the office of State Representative in the 66th District.
That is the number of Tryon’s district.
