What the heck are you talking about, yesquy? How does collective bargaining come into play with your rant? You're talking about nepotism among a small group of local bozos. I'm talking about unsustainable costs that do not happen in the private sector. Show me a private sector company on the scale of a local FD of PD with the same benefits and retirement.

Randy Frese has been chosen as the Republican nominee for the 94th Illinois State Representative.

 Frese took 70% of the vote against Marshall Schrader of Monmouth. 

Frese says he is humbled by all of those who helped in the campaign. 

“Thank you to those who came to the fundraisers, who wrote checks, who allowed us to put signs in their yards, who walked and knocked on doors with us,” said Frese. “When it comes down to a night when you can celebrate a victory, it makes it all worthwhile.” 

Currently, there is no Democrat on the general election ballot. 

However, Frese says he will count on the fact that the Democrats will appoint someone to run. 

“We will continue on strongly with the campaign,” said Frese. We will generate some enthusiasm about getting some good conservative ideas and some common sense to Springfield.” 

The Representative seat was left vacant by Rep. Jil Tracy. Tracy ran alongside Kirk Dillard as Illinois Lt. Governor hopeful.

In the three way race for Adams County Clerk, Chuck Venvertloh won over County Board member Becky Weed and Quincy School Board member Scott Stone. 

Venvertloh won by 328 votes over Weed. 

 

Venvertloth took 41% of the vote, beating Becky Weed by 320 votes. Scott Stone took 22% of the vote.

 

Venvertloth said he will use his win's momentum moving forward. 

 

“We’ve got another one coming up here. Becky Weed and Scott Stone both ran a really hard race,” said Venvertloth. “I’m looking forward to them joining the team and making a really cohesive unit and looking ahead to a victory for the Republicans in the fall.” 

 

Venvertloth will go up against Democrat Jonathan Shoenakase on the November ballot.
