Sun Times on 34th district State rep. Race

This has been on the backburner since late last-month. This article was by the Sun-Times editorial board and they interviewed all five candidates for the 34th District. I plan to post more materials about this race later today as the primary is tomorrow. Also this post was created by JP Paulus, but I supplied the quote. I suggest you click the link below and read the whole thing! - Levois

Here's the link to the article
In a race to represent a State House district that spans from 73rd Street in Chicago more than 50 miles south to small-town Momence in Kankakee County, you might expect the five candidates to represent a cross-section of Illinois.

Not so in the 34th District Democratic primary. Four of the candidates are longtime neighbors in Chicago’s tight-knit 6th Ward, living in Chatham or Chesterfield, neighborhoods that have struggled recently but long have been synonymous with Chicago’s black middle class. Three of them also work for the Chicago Police Department.

The fifth candidate, Kyle Kasperek, is a 24-year-old financial auditor from Calumet City, the largest city in the southern end of a district that grew after redistricting last fall.

The winner will replace retiring Rep. Connie Howard, also from Chatham, who was first elected in 1994. No Republicans are running.
