Six mayors in 23rd District endorse Lewis in state Senate race
Six mayors from the 23rd District today announced their endorsement of Seth Lewis, Republican candidate for the district's state Senate seat.
Individual endorsements came from former state Rep. and current Bloomingdale Mayor Franco Coladipietro; and Mayors Kevin Wallace (Bartlett), Rodney Craig (Hanover Park), Ruben Pineda (West Chicago), Steve Morley (Elmhurst) and Keith Giagnorio (Lombard).
“I am extremely proud to support Seth Lewis in his run for the State Senate," Craig said. "In an era where Springfield politicians have failed to do their job as our public servants, we must look for alternative solutions to the problem. Seth Lewis is the only choice for the 23rd State Senate District if we want someone with a high moral compass representing our community.”
Comparing the candidate favorably to his opponent, state Sen. Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park), Craig said Lewis will not “play political football” with urgent matters facing the state and expressed excitement for Lewis’ proposed reforms.
Lewis responded to the set of affirmations, saying he was honored to gain backing from so many leaders on the local level.
“We all share the same vision for our state — that we must make it a place where people want to stay and raise their families,” Lewis said. “Too many are fleeing for better jobs and opportunities outside of Illinois. I look forward to working together with local leaders in both parties to bring common-sense reforms to improve our individual communities and our state as a whole.”
