Bio: Home- Crystal Lake Republican and McHenry County Board member Carolyn Schofield launched her campaign against state Rep. Allen Skillicorn for his seat as District 66 state representative.
Schofield serves on the County Board and the executive board of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning.
“The math is simple,” Schofield said in an official statement. “There are currently 44 Republicans in the House and a bill takes 60 votes to pass. Republicans cannot pass a single bill without Democrat votes. I’ll reach across the aisle to find common ground and build trust. By working together with respect, I’ll achieve results."
