Kane County Board candidate Chris Lauzen is holding a press conference Thursday to announce his opposition to red-light cameras—and his venue of choice is an intersection where his Republican primary opponent serves as mayor.
The Illinois state senator sent a press release Tuesday inviting members of the media to a press conference at 2 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 16, at the northeast corner of the intersection of Randall Road and Williamsburg Drive. This location is across the street from the southern edge of Geneva Commons in Geneva.
Lauzen's opponent in the primary is Mayor Kevin Burns of Geneva, who has supported the use of red-light cameras in the community. Geneva has two red-light cameras on Randall Road, at the intersections of Williamsburg Drive and at Fargo Boulevard.
According to the press release, Lauzen's fellow state senator, Dan Duffy, will speak against red-light cameras as the lead sponsor of legislation that would restrict and eliminate these devices. Peter Breen, chairman and founder of BanRedCams.com, will also speak and endorse Lauzen based on his opposition to red-light cameras.
