The following is a release from Kane County auditor candidate Laura Wallett:
14th District Congressman Randy Hultgren announced his endorsement for Laura C. Wallett for Kane County auditor. In his endorsement of Laura Wallett, Congressman Hultgren stated: “I enthusiastically endorse Laura Wallett for the office of Kane County auditor. I believe that Laura has the skills, the necessary educational background and experience to be the next Kane County auditor."
In 2010, Hultgren defeated incumbent Democrat Congressman William Foster to regain Republican control of the 14th Congressional District and the privilege of representing the citizens of Kane County. Hultgren is running unopposed in the 2012 Primary Election and will be facing a yet to be determined Democratic opponent in the 2012 General Election.
Laura C. Wallett has become one of the recent Kane County candidates endorsed by Hultgren, including Chris Lauzen for Kane County chairman; Karen McConnaughay for Senate in the 33rd District; and Rob Russell for Kane County coroner.
“I am both proud and humbled to have received the congressman’s endorsement. The congressman and I share common beliefs that government must live within its means, and I intend to honor those beliefs” said Laura Wallett.
As the next Kane County auditor, Laura C. Wallett will put her 22 years of practice as an accountant and as a small business owner to work for the people of Kane County.
