announced Friday, March 2, the endorsement of DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin for Lauzen's run for Republican nominee for Kane County Board chairman.
Former state Sen. Cronin and Lauzen served together in Springfield for nearly 18 years prior to Cronin’s 2010 election to DuPage County Board chairman.
“I worked with Sen. Lauzen in Springfield, and I know he is smart and tough. He has worked tirelessly for families, small businesses and taxpayers. Please vote for Chris Lauzen in the March primary election,” Cronin said.
Lauzen cited the DuPage County Board chairman’s similar professional and political preparation for County Board chairman responsibilities.
“Dan and I literally sat next to each other in the senate working for years on similar initiatives like tax relief, ethics reform and improvements to the employment environment ... He has taken his substantial knowledge and political connections across the entire spectrum of local, state and national politics to benefit his constituents in his home county ... I intend to do the same if I’m elected,” Lauzen said.
In the Illinois General Assembly, Dan Cronin sponsored property tax relief and eminent domain reforms to protect taxpayers from government confiscation of private property.
“I am especially delighted to receive former Sen. Dan Cronin’s support because, in just his first two years as board chairman of the second-largest county in Illinois, he has already implemented a $10.4 million decrease in spending and strengthened the county’s ethics ordinance through votes on the County Board ... these are two of my top priorities,” said Lauzen.
Lauzen is running against in the March 20 GOP primary.
