Chicago Tribune Endorses Bob Kalnicky for State Representative

The Tribune also endorsed Kalnicky during his primary race this spring.

The following is a press release from Bob Kalnicky. He faces Democratic challenger Natalie Manley in the race for state representative of the 98th district. 

The Chicago Tribune has endorsed Bob Kalnicky for Illinois State Representative in the 98th district. The Tribune also previously endorsed Kalnicky during his primary race, and their confidence in Kalnicky's qualifications and abilities has not wavered.

In their endorsement, the Tribune writes: "Bob Kalnicky, a Republican from Bolingbrook, would bring a unique perspective to the General Assembly. He oversees a nonprofit counseling agency, the Community Service Council, which recently received state money to launch a foreclosure prevention program...His perspective from the nonprofit world would be useful; he knows how grant funds can be wasted and how to ensure accountability."

The Tribune endorsement echoes the confidence from many of the endorsements that Kalnicky has received from local elected leaders, business organizations, school and county board members, and the residents of the 98th district - We need policies that will help get fix our state's fiscal mess and Illinoisans back to work, and Bob Kalnicky is the only candidate in the 98th district race that can help do that.

"I am pleased to receive the endorsement of the Chicago Tribune for a second time. The Tribune truly has its finger on the pulse of Illinois politics, and their most recent polls show that Illinois residents are incredibly unhappy with the direction that Governor Pat Quinn and Speaker Mike Madigan have taken us in. The Tribune, like all Illinoisans, knows that something needs to change, and I appreciate their recognition and endorsement," stated Kalnicky.

Bob Kalnicky formerly served as the Chairman of the Romeoville Chamber of Commerce Board and Vice President of the DuPage Township Republican Organization. Kalnicky has received notable endorsements from Congresswoman Judy Biggert, Romeoville Mayor John Noak, Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar, the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), and many others.

We support Bob Kalnicky in this race. We have received many mail pieces supporting the Democrat candidate, Natalie Manley, paid for by the IL Democratic Party (shown in the return address). The pieces are extremely deceptive, claiming she will "stop the spending" and reform what "the politicians" in Springfield are doing. "The Springfield Politicians" are the very ones paying for the mailings, claiming she will fight THEM. Mike Madigan is the head of the IL Democratic Party as well as the Speaker of the House. The mailings by the IL Democratic Party supporting Manley would not be made without his approval. Wake up residents! If Manley is elected, she is a vote to support Mike Madigan and his death-grip on Illinois. We MUST change the House of Representatives in Springfield.
