Recently reelected state Rep. Mark Batinick (R-Plainfield) is hopeful that what he calls the selfish nature of Springfield's Democrats may finally propel them to do something about the state’s pension crisis.
Will County Board member Steve Balich read that county Democrats, who now hold a 24-12 majority on the board, might want to do away with opening prayers at board meetings. And he's appalled, he told the Will County Gazette.
Will County Board member Steve Balich, a Republican, said state Rep. Stephanie Kifowit’s (D-Aurora) rant against Rep.Peter Breen (R-Lombard), in which, some claim, she wished death on him and his family, speaks to a much deeper overall problem.
Alyssia Benford, a former republican candidate for State House District 98, said she views Rep. Stephanie Kifowit’s (D-Aurora) House floor rant against Peter Breen as just the latest example of how low some lawmakers will go to make their voice heard on a given issue.
Republican lawmakers are expressing outrage over remarks made on the House floor by Rep. Stephanie Kifowit (D-Aurora) as tensions boiled over during debate over a bill aimed at aiding families impacted by the recent Legionnaires outbreak at a downstate nursing home.
Describing her campaign as one about “reclaiming your voice,” Republican state House hopeful Alyssia Benford recently posted to Facebook to thank supporters for standing with her in her 98th House District run.
