Previously, McHenry County Blog pointed out that House Speaker Mike Madigan is pumping tens of thousands of dollars into McHenry County Board member Suzanne Ness’ State Rep. campaign.
$21,987.39 for a mailing on January 21st to be exact.
Another $13,416.18 for a second mailing was spent by Madigan on January 30th.
Salary of $1,250.23 from the same source was reported for Kathleen Stanczykiewicz on January 31st.
Next came $20,000 from State Rep. Kathleen Willis of Addison.
Woodstock resident Donald Metivier kicked in $2,550 on February 10th.
In addition, Ness spent $1,350 of her own money for printing.
As the first article said,
Safe to Predict that County Board Member Suzanne Ness, If Elected State Rep., Will Vote for Mike Madigan for Speaker
Hard to see any way that Ness could be independent of House Speaker Madigan.
