Both of Naperville’s seats in the Illinois House will be up for grabs in the 2008 election. State Rep. Jim Meyer announced Wednesday that he will not seek re-election when his term ends in 2009, and Rep. Joe Dunn previously announced his decision not to run again.
City Councilman Doug Krause told The Sun today he’s one of several political figures mulling a run for state representative in 2008. An official announcement from Krause is expected next week, and DuPage County Republican Central Committee Executive Director David Carlin is also considering a run for one of the two seats, The Sun reported today.
“To say that my foot is in the water would be an understatement,” Carlin said. “My whole body is hovering above the water.”
As the rumors heat up, who would you like to see jump into the campaign pool to represent Naperville in next year’s election?
