Streator Republican trying to unseat Democrat Mautino

Posted by wlpo on October 24, 2014

Repairing Illinois’ economy is a priority for both of your choices for state representative. Though, the candidates don’t agree on how that should be achieved.

Democrat Frank Mautino has been the 76th District state representative since 1991. He says the most important job for the General Assembly  is to continue to stabilizing the economy. Mautino says the General Assembly’s second priority is getting final resolution to the pension issue.

Jerry Long of Streator is challenging Mautino. Long says the first job for lawmakers should be restoring the state’s credit rating. He thinks to do that, they will need to cut waste and fraud.

The 76th District includes La Salle, Bureau and Putnam Counties. Learn more about the candidates by listening to interviews available at the Classic Hits 103-9 WLPO News Page.
