Julie Fox, Libertarian Candidate for Illinois Comptroller, announced today the formal campaign endorsement of Joe Walsh, former U.S. Congressman from the Illinois 8th Congressional District. Ms. Fox, a Certified Public Accountant from Dundee, IL was thrilled with the news.
Upon hearing that Congressman Walsh had endorsed her over her two major party opponents, Ms. Fox said, “The Congressman believes as I do, that the Comptroller, the Chief Financial Officer of the state, should at a minimum be an accountant. After all, we expect our Attorney General to be a lawyer, don’t we? Why would we even think of electing someone untrained in the complex management of money to handle such an important task?” Congressman Walsh, in deciding to give his endorsement said, “Julie’s somebody everyone should get excited about. She’s not a career politician; she’s different from the others. As the only CPA in the race she’s actually qualified for the job. She’s running for the office because she’s ticked off about the condition of the state’s financial condition, and she actually wants to do something about it. That’s pretty impressive.”
