Democrat Martin J. Moylan of Des Plaineshas carved out a niche in Springfield by sponsoring sensiblegun legislation, including a billto ban military-style weapons and “bump stocks” that Gov. Bruce Rauner vetoed.
Moylan has also championed other issues that benefit middle-class families and working people, such as lowering property taxes and stopping local municipalities from creating “right-to-work” zones that undercut labor rights.
An experienced legislator and on-time mayor and alderman in Des Plaines, Moylan is our pick for a fourth term in the northwest suburban 55th District. He is opposed by Republican Marilyn Smolenski, a first-time candidate who owns a small business that creates clothing for women who are gun enthusiasts.
