Dems, GOP Alike Mourn Netsch's Passing


Friends and colleagues on both sides of the aisle are remembering Dawn Clark Netsch as a political icon who served the people of the state with honesty and integrity. 

 

The former state senator and comptroller… who became the first woman to win a major party nomination for Illinois governor… died Tuesday morning at the age of 86.  She revealed in January that she was battling Lou Gehrig’s Disease. 

 

Democrats and Republicans alike say Netsch was a trailblazer for women in politics and someone who set a standard for public service.
