Former Comptroller Battling Lou Gehrig's Disease

Former Illinois Comptroller and one-time candidate for governor Dawn Clark Netsch has revealed that she is battling Lou Gehrig’s Disease.


Netsch, who is 86, told the Chicago Sun-Times that she has a difficult fight ahead, but wanted to make the news public to increase awareness about the degenerative and incurable nerve disorder.


Netsch was the state comptroller when she won the Democratic nomination for governor in 1994… the first woman to be a major party nominee in the state. She went on to lose to Republican incumbent Jim Edgar.
