Lauzen: Sauceda will prove himself
The Kane County Chronicle editorializes, “Even if [Rob] Sauceda were the best candidate for that job, [Chris] Lauzen should understand it’s questionable for him to seek to fill the spot with a political supporter of his.” I accept the paper’s skepticism, but reject its and Mike Kenyon’s assertion that his former primary challenger Rob Sauceda is not a good choice for the position of temporarily collecting the bills at the animal control shelter.
Just one pleasant year ago, the Chronicle endorsed my opponent in the important primary for the Kane County Board chairman race. However, we went on to win that contest with 70 percent of the vote. I am delighted to have literally tens of thousands of “political supporters.”
I hope that the more than 2,800 voters and their families who put up yard signs as “political supporters” are not automatically disqualified from helping me now that we are putting in place needed management and ethics reforms. Did you notice that there were no laudatory editorials when I appointed supporters of my opponent (who had contributed thousands of dollars to beat us) or even five elected Democrats to important Kane County Board chairmanships? I did not see that balance in reporting and opinion.
