Long, Oberweis and Urlacher among the names beating the election filing deadline

Posted by wlpo on November 30, 2015

Saying he didn’t have time to collect election signatures during the week because of his truck driving job, Jerry Long of Streator just did meet the filing deadline.

The Republican turned in his papers Monday to run for the 76th District State Representative seat currently held by Frank Mautino. Long narrowly lost to Mautino in last year’s election but will face Democrat Andy Skoog of La Salle next year if he’s able to beat Jacob Bramel of Marseilles in the March primary.

Among the bigger names filing for state office Monday was Republican Jim Oberweis of Oberweis Dairy fame and Republican Casey Urlacher, the younger brother of Bear great Brian Urlacher.
