ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) – Illinois Gubernatorial candidate Chris Kennedy is moving into Rockford by adding a new campaign office downtown.
The Kennedy for Illinois campaign is moving in to the 600 block of East State Street. Since moving in, the Rockford office has volunteers on Thursday night’s going through phone calls and working on the campaign. Kennedy says adding a field office in Rockford shows his campaign is reaching out to every part of the state.
“We want to put a stake in the ground and let everybody know that they matter; that the entire state is important to the Kennedy campaign. And that they wherever they live, we want their future to be a part of our future as well,” says Kennedy.
Earlier this week, Kennedy announced Chicago political activist Ra Joy as his running mate. Joy is the Executive Director of Change Illinois.
