LAKE COUNTY - Not only did petition filing for state legislative and executive offices open Monday at the Illinois Board of Elections in Springfield, county offices were busy with candidates filing for county offices.
David Stolman filed his paperwork Monday to run for Lake County Treasurer to fill Treasurer Bob Skidmore's open seat in 2015. Stolman filed with over twice the number of required signatures to run for countywide office as a Republican.
“If honored to have the opportunity to serve our community as the next Lake County Treasurer, I will focus on improving the lives of Lake County families by being a strong voice for economic development,” said Stolman.
“We must work to create and retain quality jobs so we can put our talented residents back to work. As a staunch fiscal conservative, I will continue the Lake County legacy of fiscal responsibility. It is my pledge to taxpayers that I will be efficient with their tax dollars so that Lake County can remain an oasis of fiscal sanity in Illinois.”
David Stolman has been on the Lake County Board since 1992. He served as Board Chairman from 2010-2012, where he made economic development his primary focus.
Stolman has already received the support of respected leaders throughout Lake County. The list includes numerous county officials, such as Lake County Circuit Court Clerk Keith Brin, Lake County Regional Superintendant of Schools Roycealee Wood, Lake County Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor, and Lake County Board Members Bonnie Thomson Carter, Brent Paxton, Linda Pedersen, Mike Rummel, Nick Sauer, Craig Taylor, and Tom Weber.
