Endorsements: Vote Mendoza for Comptroller
Leslie Munger has self-identified as Bruce Rauner’s “right-hand” in the first term governor’s failed executive. For a position that should remain party-neutral, Munger has time and again waded into the fray to toss the political football around some herself.
Campaign ads blast her opponent, Democrat and current Clerk for the City of Chicago Susana Mendoza, as being prone to politicking herself. But Mendoza used to be a state legislator, and therefore a politician. The state’s comptroller is supposed to pay the bills on time, within the framework of the law, and without the specter of any lingering budget battles in mind.
Munger, in being willing to do Rauner’s dirty work, has failed the citizens of Illinois. Vote Susana Mendoza for Comptroller.
