LAKE ZURICH, IL – Chris Bos, a former non-profit leader with a business background, and Republican candidate for the 51st District of the Illinois House of Representatives, issued a statement following today’s State of the State address:

“Today, we heard more of the same from Springfield: more taxes, more spending money we don’t have and more driving families and business out of our state,” said Bos.

“The reality is, people in the 51st District are looking for leadership and solutions. We need voices in Springfield who will stand up for families and business to help them thrive and grow. People are looking for representation that will lead us down the path of fiscal responsibility and living within Illinois’ means. And, they are looking for a leader who won’t go-along-to-get-along and will push back against the corrupt status quo that has humiliated our state.

“Although Representative Mary Edly-Allen promised she would be different, it’s clear that she is part of the Madigan Machine and enabling the problem. As the representative for the 51st District, I won’t forget who I work for: the people of our district. I will work tirelessly to encourage economic growth, force Springfield to live within its means, and clean up Illinois.”

Chris Bos has dedicated his life to service. For nearly two decades, he devoted his time as a children’s and family pastor, as well as working with non-profit leadership. He has been a trustee with Ela Township since 2017. Chris and his wife Christina live in Lake Zurich and have three children.
