Naperville woman won't withdraw from ballot despite DuPage County error that makes her ineligible to run for state seat

Naperville woman won't withdraw from ballot despite DuPage County error that makes her ineligible to run for state seat

Val Montgomery is not backing out.

A Facebook message posted late Friday afternoon by the Naperville Democrat says she will not remove her name from the ballot for the 41st District House seat even though she actually lives in the 49th District. An error made by the DuPage County Election Commission resulting in Montgomery being told she lived in the 41st District, where she was attempting to oust state Rep. Grant Wehrli, R-Naperville.

 “My opponent doesn’t seem to want to discuss issues or voting records,” Montgomery wrote. “So, when people show you who they really are, listen. Political corruption and white privilege are real and happen in too many places. The only thing I am guilty of is being a black woman in Naperville. This is not the first time a black woman in (Illinois) has run for office and suddenly issues with residency emerge.”

Naperville Congressional candidate Lauren Underwood to get ice cream made in her honor by Ben and Jerry

Naperville Democrat Lauren Underwood is one of seven Congressional candidates being backed by Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield — co-founders of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream — and for whom they will be naming an ice cream flavor for this fall.

“We wanted to do our part to check President Trump’s unrestrained power and send progressive champions to Congress who will really fight for working people and not just blow smoke,” Cohen said in a news release. “To guys like us, that means cranking up the old ice cream freezer.”
