DAILY HERALD
— Democrats seek to unseat Bolingbrook mayor Roger Claar who hosted Trump fundraiser – Kerry Lester
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161208/news/161209017/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Three-term Will County board member Jackie Traynere was part of a group protesting at the fundraiser at the Bolingbrook Golf Club and said that got the ball rolling for her to file nominating petitions to run in the April 4 election. “The group continued to meet, and they said, you know, it’s time. Somebody needs to run,” Traynere said. “I thought about it, and remembered my father always taught me, ‘Don’t point your finger at someone because then there are three of them pointing back at you.’ Sometimes you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.” Traynere’s been a Bolingbrook resident since 1970, works as a union organizer and owns a cleaning business with her husband. Claar, who’s making plans to attend Trump’s inauguration Jan. 20, says his 20 years as mayor show he has the backing of the local electorate. He also points out that municipal elections are nonpartisan. “There’s no such thing as a Republican pothole or Democratic pothole,” he says. “These are local issues, not national or international or even state (issues).” Helping out  Democrats offering to help Traynere include members of U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin’s campaign, U.S. Rep. Bill Foster’s office and the Will County Democrats. They point to election results showing more than 60 percent of Bolingbrook residents voted for Clinton in the November election. But it’s likely Claar also is picking up more help. “I believe there’s a good support base for me out there,” he says.)
