Tribune: Kelley for Will County Sheriff

Author: Editor
Sheriff: Incumbent Paul Kaupas is retiring, which creates the opportunity for a way-overdue overhaul of this troubled office. That's not likely to happen under Republican Ken Kaupas of Shorewood, the deputy chief of special operations and a second cousin of the incumbent. Democrat Mike Kelley of Lockport has the experience — he's a sergeant in the criminal investigations unit — and the strong ideas to accomplish significant improvements. Kelley would trim administrative expenses and revise the current process for sheriff's foreclosure sales, promising to save big money. He vows to attack the stunning rise in heroin use by young people in the suburbs by targeting dealers. Kelley is endorsed.

Rep. Natalie Manley and Bolton seek 98th House seat

Author: Editor

Democrat Natalie Manley wants to serve another term in the Illinois House representing the 98th District, but her opponent Yvonne Bolton – a Plainfield Township tax collector – says she’s the better woman for the job.

Bolton describes herself as a stay-at-home mom with a passion for public service. She serves on several local governmental and nonprofit entities, including the Republican National Hispanic Assembly of Will County, the Spanish Community Center in downtown Joliet and the Will County Republicans. She’s a Hispanic conservative – a “rarity in the Latino community,” Bolton said.
