More than 200 people are seeking the Democratic party nomination for Illinois lieutenant governor, and one of them has a plastics industry background. According to the Daily Herald in suburban Chicago: "Stevan Kreger worked in at a plastic-coloring plant for more than 30 years until his job was outsourced to China. Now, the 60-year-old South Elgin native has his sights set on a new job - lieutenant governor of the State of Illinois."
"I have a feeling I could probably do just as well as all the goofballs that get in there," Kreger said.Kreger's nomination form for the office has some more interesting snippets:
1. Why are you a Democrat? Because I care about my country 2. Have you previously held elected office? If so, which one(s)? No 3. What do you believe are the greatest challenges facing the State of Illinois and areas of greatest opportunity? The economy and ethics 4. What strengths would you bring to the ticket? I am an honest person with a plain common sense attitude 5. Please list any organizations or elected officials that have endorsed your candidacy for lieutenant governor. No one has endorsed me except my wifeI got a kick out of that last one. Although I can think of at least one high-profile politician who wouldn't get his wife's endorsement. Good luck, Stevan. You may be a longshot, but you've got a sense of humor.
