OTTAWA - 76th House District Republican candidate Jerry Long opened campaign headquarters in Ottawa last week. State Senator Sue Rezin was on hand to cut the ribbon and will share the office with Long throughout the 2014 election campaign.
"The reason I decided to run for State Representative is because of the waste and fraud of which my opponent has been a part. I intend to cut that waste," Long said. "In fact, our campaign decided to open our headquarters in Ottawa in order to save money by joining with the LaSalle County Republican Central Committee. This is how I will run my office as state representative, keeping our constituents money and best interest in mind."
Long, who is both a union truck driver and small business owner, lives in Streator with his wife. They have three daughters, one son, and eight grandchildren.
