Anderson Drops Out

Naperville Republican Janice Anderson has ended her campaign for a seat on the DuPage County Board. Anderson, a former one-term county board member, has taken a new job with the consulting firm Egon Zehnder. She said in a statement to the Daily Herald, “I didn’t take the decision lightly, but I am withdrawing for personal reasons relating to my new career position.” Anderson is the second Republican candidate to exit the District 5 race. Rich Janor bowed out after being chosen as the new Republican nominee for state representative in the 41st District. Currently the only remaining GOP candidate in the District 5 field is Patty Gustin, who currently serves on the Naperville City Council. According to the Illinois State Board of Elections, tomorrow is the last day for the DuPage County GOP organization to fill the vacancies in the ballot through nomination. The Illinois primary election is on November 8, 2022.
