Naperville woman won't withdraw from ballot despite DuPage County error that makes her ineligible to run for state seat

Naperville woman won't withdraw from ballot despite DuPage County error that makes her ineligible to run for state seat

Val Montgomery is not backing out.

A Facebook message posted late Friday afternoon by the Naperville Democrat says she will not remove her name from the ballot for the 41st District House seat even though she actually lives in the 49th District. An error made by the DuPage County Election Commission resulting in Montgomery being told she lived in the 41st District, where she was attempting to oust state Rep. Grant Wehrli, R-Naperville.

 “My opponent doesn’t seem to want to discuss issues or voting records,” Montgomery wrote. “So, when people show you who they really are, listen. Political corruption and white privilege are real and happen in too many places. The only thing I am guilty of is being a black woman in Naperville. This is not the first time a black woman in (Illinois) has run for office and suddenly issues with residency emerge.”

Naperville Congressional candidate Lauren Underwood to get ice cream made in her honor by Ben and Jerry

Naperville Congressional candidate Lauren Underwood to get ice cream made in her honor by Ben and Jerry

Naperville Democrat Lauren Underwood is one of seven Congressional candidates being backed by Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield — co-founders of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream — and for whom they will be naming an ice cream flavor for this fall.

“We wanted to do our part to check President Trump’s unrestrained power and send progressive champions to Congress who will really fight for working people and not just blow smoke,” Cohen said in a news release. “To guys like us, that means cranking up the old ice cream freezer.”

Editorial: Mr. President: We aren’t enemies of the people. We’re a check on government.

Editorial: Mr. President: We aren’t enemies of the people. We’re a check on government.

You may have read that, this week, scores of U.S. newspapers are responding in independently written editorials to President Trump’s many attacks on journalists as enemies — his word — of the American people.

As this became a national news story, we at the Tribune Editorial Board had two choices: We could stay silent and leave you wondering what message to read into that, or we could explain in our own words the dangers the president’s incitement has created. We chose Option 2 even though we generally avoid group editorial efforts.

We haven’t written at length about Trump’s vilification of journalists. Journalism isn’t supposed to be about journalists. But Trump has made us part of news stories so often that we’ll take time to talk with you about that.
