Former State Sen. Bill Peterson backs Dillard Tracy

Key points:

  • Friends with Dillard for years
  • Dillard can put end to job-killing regulations
  • Jil Tracy is most experienced candidate for Lt. Gov.
Long Grove, IL– Former State Senator Bill Peterson (R-Long Grove) has announced his support for State Senator Kirk Dillard (R-Hinsdale) and State Representative Jil Tracy (R-Quincy) to be the 2014 Republican nominees for Governor and Lt. Governor, saying “they are the most experienced team.”
“I have been friends with Kirk for years, and we worked closely together in the State Senate,” Peterson said. “He has the experience needed to get the state working again.”
“Electing Kirk Dillard Governor is the first step to bringing jobs back to Illinois.”
Peterson, who previously served as the Republican State Central Committeeman for the 10th Congressional District when sitting U.S. Senator Mark Kirk was Congressman, stressed the importance of a Governor who realizes the need for economic growth in the state.
“Illinois must have a leader who can finally put an end to the job-killing regulations which have paralyzed businesses for the past 10 years,” Peterson said. “Kirk’s plan to restore Illinois as the economic engine of the Midwest includes removing the bureaucratic red tape which has stifled business expansion in Illinois. Electing Kirk Dillard Governor is the first step to bringing jobs back to Illinois.”
Peterson praised Dillard’s choice for Lt. Governor, running mate Representative Jil Tracy.
“Jil is by far the most experienced candidate for Lt. Governor,” said Peterson. “Not only does she stand out as a policy maker with real, proven experience working in the Statehouse, she’s also a successful lawyer and business owner herself. Jil without a doubt is the best person to help Kirk fix Illinois.
“Kirk Dillard and Jil Tracy are tested and prepared. They are the right team to lead the state and I’m ready to work to get them into office and get Illinois moving again.”
Senator Peterson is joining Representative Jo Anne Osmond, a former Lake County GOP Chairwoman in supporting the Dillard-Tracy ticket. Representative Osmond announced her support for Dillard-Tracy in September, citing their experience in job creation.
