ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) – Former Rockford Mayoral candidate Brian Leggero announces he is once again campaigning; this time for Lieutenant Governor.
William Kelly, the Republican gubernatorial candidate, challenging Governor Bruce Rauner in the 2018 primary, announces Leggero as his running mate. Kelly says adding Leggero to his campaign gives GOP voters an alternative to Governor Rauner. The Rockford native says he wants those in the State of Illinois to once again be able to trust our leaders.
“Trust is something that builds up over time and we’re going to build up trust between all people. We want to be the representatives for all the people of Illinois,” says Leggero.
Leggero finished third in April’s Rockford Mayoral Election, capturing about 14% of the overall vote.
