Kendall County Resident Valerie Burd recently won her appeal to represent to the Democratic Party as our nominee in the Illinois 50th House District. She was slated by the Kane and Kendall County Democratic Chairman. Valerie gathered over 570 signatures in a short period of time. Her reason for wanting to seek the position is she believes in a strong democracy and having a choice matters. Valerie has served the Kendall County Community on numerous boards and as Alderman and then Mayor of Yorkville. Valerie will now face incumbent State Representative Keith Wheeler to represent the Illinois 50th District.
