Mike Fortner Wins

West Chicago Mayor Michael Fortner won the Republican nomination in the 92nd State Rep District. Fortner's opponent, Pamela Mitroff, had major business support.

Fortner is a major advocate of better public transit for the suburbs, and has been a leader in protecting open spaces like West Chicago Prairie. He is a physics professor at Northern Illinois University.

Good work by volunteers for Sierra Club's River Prairie Group, who walked precincts and did targetted mail for Fortner. It will be great to have a new pro-environment House Republican!
