Chicago Tribune’s Endorsement for the 62nd District is Adam Solano: The stronger Republican is Adam Solano of Third Lake, a financial adviser who built his own business and knows the importance of spending discipline. Republicans have been trying to win back this north suburban seat for several election cycles. The winner of the GOP primary will face incumbent Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake.
While overseeing a financial professional organization that began to lose members, he was forced to make difficult decisions, including cutting staff and consolidating. That takes guts. He also understands the strain pension costs are inflicting on state finances. Simple math says the state’s pension funds cannot, and will not, last into perpetuity. Urgent change is needed.
Ken Idstein, a mortgage broker from Grayslake, offers an impressive community service record and shares Solano’s anti-tax posture. But Solano is the more proficient candidate. He is endorsed.
