A press release from Democratic Party candidate for State Representative to replace retiring Mike Tryon:
Nancy Zettler for State Representative announces Republicans for Nancy Zettler
We are proud to announce Republicans for Nancy Zettler, led by leaders in the community of the 66th District who want a true, independent representative sent to Springfield. The effort is being launched with a letter (attached) to thousands of Republican voters from the following Republican community leaders:
- Sue Harney, Dundee Township Supervisor
- Dr. Kenneth Arndt, Interim Superintendant, Elgin Area School District, U46
- Dr. Cheryl Crates, Board Member, CFO, Friends of the Fox
- Jack Festen, Trustee, West Dundee Firefighter’s Pension Board
- Fred Heid, Superintendent, Community Unit School District 300
- Craig Johnson, President, Lionize Delivery Solutions, Inc.
Nancy Zettler will be the bipartisan and independent leader that we need, and she has the record to prove it. Nancy has a long record of bipartisan work to make sure that our schools are funded. She has gone to Springfield, fought against the “machine”, and WON.
When Springfield wanted to take millions of our tax dollars from District 300 and give it to corporations, she helped lead a campaign to make sure that some of that money stayed in our public schools. And she did this by demonstrating her ability to work on both sides of the aisle, with Republicans AND Democrats, in order to benefit the residents of our district.
We don’t need another bomb thrower in Springfield. We need someone who can put her/his ego on the back burner, someone who can work with rank and file legislators legislative leadership and the Governor’s office. Only one candidate in this race has a track record of the bipartisan negotiation that we need, and that is Nancy Zettler.
