A poorly monitored voter-registration process just as harmful as outright fraud, House candidate says

Ela Township Trustee and Illinois House candidate Chris Bos (R-Lake Zurich) says he saw the Secretary of State’s program that mistakenly registered hundreds of non-citizens to vote for what it was – a catastrophe waiting to happen.

“When he was running for Secretary of State, Jason Helland brought this up as an issue and no one did anything about it,” Bos, running against state Rep. Mary Edly-Allen (D-Libertyville) in the 51st District, told the Lake County Gazette.

State of the State address offered nothing new, says 51st District House candidate Bos

Republican Candidate for the 51st district of the Illinois House of Representatives Chris Bos (R-Lake Zurich) says Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s recent state address was “more of the same” and offered little in the way of new policies that will boost the state’s economy, tackle mounting debt and restore people’s trust in their government.

“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,” Ela Township trustee Bos said in a press release, adding that leadership is what the people in his district need most. ...

“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

Challenger Bos insists that legislators – including Edly-Allen – be held to a higher standard

Ela Township Trustee Chris Bos (R-Lake Zurich), the Illinois House Republican challenger in the 51st District, is blasting rival state Rep. Mary Edly-Allen (D-Libertyville) for being slow to respond to the simmering Downstate rape scandal involving a longtime associate of House Speaker Mike Madigan (D-Chicago), and for being “disingenuous” when she finally did respond late last week.

“She finally posted something on Facebook about the situation, but I think what she had to say was quite disingenuous,” Bos told the Lake County Gazette. ...

Bos: More of the Same in State of State Address

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

January 29, 2020

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.


More Than One Week Later, Edly-Allen Remains Silent on Rape Coverup

Why is Edly-Allen refusing to call out Madigan and his allies for horrifying allegations?

 

LAKE ZURICH, IL – It has been eight days since news broke about the horrifying emails disclosing a powerful, longtime ally and friend of House Speaker Mike Madigan allegedly covered up a rape in Champaign, ghost payrolling of government workers, as well as “other items,” yet Representative Mary Edly-Allen remains silent over the allegations surrounding her party boss.

As Crain’s Chicago Business’ Greg Hinz notes, “[S]adly, it is clear that fellow House Democrats and Gov. J.B Pritzker don't have the fortitude to demand a needed change in leadership.”

While the Daily Herald echoed Hinz stating, “[I]t’s time for Madigan to go. If the state’s Democrats don’t force his ouster as party chairman, they invite a backlash at the polls this November. And if the House doesn’t move to replace him as speaker, it loses what little credibility it still has.”

So why has Edly-Allen remained silent? Because Mike Madigan has bankrolled her campaign.


House candidate Bos, fellow Republicans not buying what Dems are selling with property tax task force

More than 40 years of evidence helped convince Illinois House candidate and Ela Township trustee Chris Bos (R-Lake Zurich) not to expect too much from the state's new property tax relief task force.

“This task force business has been going on since the 1970s and nothing’s resulted from any of them,” Bos told the Lake County Gazette. “It’s like taking mud and putting sprinkles on it and trying to sell it as ice cream.” ...

Illinois' 51st District candidate Bos vows to fight corruption in Springfield

Illinois House candidate and Ela Township Trustee Chris Bos (R-Lake Zurich) knows what his priority would be if he were already serving in Springfield.
