State Representative Tim Butler, running in the 95th Illinois House District, announced today he has secured the endorsement of every Republican official elected countywide in Sangamon County. Local Republicans have a strong tradition of electing countywide officials and the party currently holds eight of the nine offices.
Sangamon Countywide officials endorsing Tim Butler are: Treasurer Joe Aiello, Coroner Jim Allmon, Sheriff Jack Campbell, Regional Superintendent of Schools Shannon Fehrholz, Auditor Andy Goleman, County Clerk Don Gray, Circuit Clerk Paul Palazzolo, and State's Attorney Dan Wright.
“These endorsements underscore the work we have done collaboratively with our county officials to make Sangamon County responsive to the citizens and to be run in an efficient manner,” said Butler. “From working to make our streets safe with Jack Campbell, to securing our elections with Don Gray, to fighting for government consolidation with Joe Aiello, we have made Sangamon County a great place to live. From the courthouse to the statehouse, I’m proud to have worked with these folks to make our local government work for the people and I’m honored to have their endorsement.”
“Tim Butler has the back of our law enforcement,” said Sheriff Jack Campbell. “Tim knows one of the best ways to protect our citizens is to provide a strong presence of policing on our streets and in our communities. Tim has stood strong against those who want to defund and disarm our police.”
“There is no one who has fought harder for efficiency in government than Tim Butler,” said Sangamon County Treasurer Joe Aiello. “Tim wrote a law to eliminate an unnecessary level of government in Sangamon County. He has been a loud voice in support of reducing costs and duplication of county government."
