Letter: Good luck to Kirk Dillard in governor race

To the Editor:

Thanks to everyone who worked hard, participated in, and attended this year’s Sycamore Pumpkin Festival, including great weather for the parade Sunday afternoon.

I was surprised to notice that the only gubernatorial candidate who took the time to enter a float in the parade, and personally walk the entire parade route himself, was Illinois Republican state Sen. Kirk Dillard. What a wonderful opportunity for him to meet northern Illinois voters!

Thank you Sen. Dillard and best wishes in your upcoming campaign for governor of Illinois.
