It’s tough to find something that is newsworthy at the end of a campaign, but I think Long Grove Village President Maria Rodriguez has managed to do it.
She announces today the endorsements of the top two law enforcement officials in Lake County.
Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran, who switched from Democrat to Republican when it was not a popular thing to do, and State’s Attorney Mike Waller.
Rodriguez is pretty much the Lake County Establishment’s choice, so many the endorsements are not a surprise to anyone but me.
If I had such endorsements early on, I would have used them before this point in the campaign.
Rodriguez’ press release follows:
Prominent Law Enforcement Officials Come Out
for Maria Rodriguez for Congress
LONG GROVE – Today, Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran and Lake County State’s Attorney Mike Waller endorsed Maria Rodriguez’s bid to win the Illinois’ 8th Congressional District Republican primary on February 2.
Mark Curran, the popular first term sheriff, stated in his endorsement,
“I’ve known Maria Rodriguez for years. She is an effective, capable mayor with strong integrity. When she makes a commitment, she always comes through. Maria Rodriguez has made a commitment to the 8th district to be a strong fiscal conservative focused on protecting our nation and rebuilding our economy. I am happy to join her team.”
Mike Waller is the Lake County State’s Attorney. In endorsing Maria Rodriguez, Waller stated,
“We could use Mayor Rodriguez’s high level of integrity in Congress. She will be a strong, honest voice for her constituents and put the people first, not herself.”
