CHICAGO TRIBUNE GIVES SAM ENTHUSIASTIC ENDORSEMENT!
"We endorsed Democratic Rep. Sam Yingling in 2012 with the hope he would deliver on a promise to consolidate government, and he did. Yingling passed a bill that makes it easier to get rid of unneeded taxing bodies. Illinois has nearly 7,000 units of local government. He also supported pension reform and resisted party pressure to extend the 2011 income tax hike . . . We give a nod to Yingling's track record, though. He is endorsed."
