Her school board experience makes her the better candidate.

Two thoughtful candidates are running in the 41st Illinois House District Democratic primary. We endorse Janet Yang Rohr, a lifelong resident of Naperville, based on her broader experience in government as a Naperville District 203 School Board member. Rohr is a global data director for Morningstar Financial Services, and in that role, she says, she has had to stand up for her own fact-based decisions, an experience that should be helpful in the Legislature.

Rohr’s priorities include property tax relief, economic growth and education. She opposes term limits and taxing retirement income. She also supports an effort to do as much as possible to move a coal-burning power plant financed by Naperville and several other suburbs toward renewable energy.

Also running is social worker Denika McMillen of Naperville. The winner in this west suburban district will challenge three-term Republican incumbent Grant Wehrli in November.
