Jim Oberweis has proven he can successfully run a business, and he has carried that message into his quest to join the Illinois Senate. Oberweis, a Sugar Grove resident and the chairman of Oberweis Dairy, gets the nod in the 25th Illinois Senate District race. The Republican touts his skills as a negotiator and his promise to help run the state like a business. When we’re asking our state officials to make job creation their top priority, it makes sense to vote for a candidate who has demonstrated an ability to put people to work. The 25th Illinois Senate District includes parts of Sugar Grove, Elburn, Batavia, Geneva and St. Charles. Opponent Corinne Pierog, a Democrat, runs a consulting company, and she is a St. Charles School District 303 board member. She has relevant experience, and she is a serious candidate. But Oberweis is our choice.
