Lifelong Naperville resident Grant Wehrli announced today his candidacy for the Illinois General Assembly House District 41.
The Republican candidate has spent the past eight years on the Naperville City Council and wants to take his talents to Springfield.
“We have to get our financial house in order in Springfield. Without doing that we’ll never see the economy recover like we know it can, which will lead to more jobs. So finances first, get our economy going and then that will lead to a rising tide to all boats and get some jobs back into Illinois,” said Wehrli.
Naperville Republican and former councilwoman Darlene Senger currently holds the position Wehrli is running for. She announced last week that she is challenging Naperville Democrat Bill Foster for his spot in the 11th Congressional District.
As of now, no one has announced their intent to run against Wehrli.
If needed, a Primary Election will be held on March 18, 2014, followed by the General Election on November 4, 2014.
