There is no exciting or even boring contest for McHenry County Stat’s Attorney this year, so let’s dip into the one in Lake County. The following press release is from a candidate who actually attended a fund raising event for future State Representative Barb Wheeler this summer:
BRYAN WINTER SWEEPS GOP ENDORSEMENTS FOR STATE’S ATTORNEY
Libertyville, Wauconda, & Cuba Township Organizations Impressed by Winter’s Vision for Office
WAUKEGAN, IL – Three Lake County Republican Township organizations have all endorsed Republican Candidate, Bryan R. Winter for Lake County State’s Attorney.
The Libertyville Township Republican Organization, one of the largest Republican groups in the County announced its “unanimous” endorsement and support for Bryan Winter’s candidacy on Saturday. Wauconda Township Republican Club and the Cuba Republican Club also endorsed Winter.
The Libertyville endorsement session included township committeemen listening to presentations from each Republican candidate for the position of State’s Attorney. Organizational bylaws require that a candidate must receive support from at least 60% of the total votes cast by committeemen to receive an endorsement.
The “unanimous” endorsement from the organization in support of Winter was exceptional, since rarely does a candidate receive 100% support in a contested primary.
Libertyville Republican Chairman, Edward P. Kelly stated, “Bryan Winter is a proven leader within the Lake County legal community; he has broad legal experience in addition to his service as the chief legal officer for several governmental entities. He also has leadership skills as the past president of the Lake County Bar Association. His experience and skills are what is needed for the next State’s Attorney.”
The Wauconda Township Republican Club and Cuba Township Republicans also endorsed Bryan Winter for Lake County State’s Attorney. Bruce J. Sauer, Chairman of the Cuba Township Republican organization noted that “Bryan Winter has the strongest qualifications and the vision to increase the cooperation between the county and local police departments.”
”It means a great deal to me to receive group endorsements from the Libertyville, Cuba and Wauconda Township Republican organizations,” said Winter. “I greatly appreciate their support and would bring a fresh and independent approach to the office of the Lake County State’s Attorney by utilizing my experience and leadership skills.”
Bryan Winter, is a former local prosecutor and litigator with over 26 years of experience in legal matters relating to individuals, corporations and municipalities. Winter is the village attorney for Gurnee and Kildeer. He grew up in Waukegan, and currently resides with his wife, Diane, and son in Lake Barrington.
