Because… Quinn!

Wednesday, Mar 9, 2016

* From the Tribune’s profile of the 8th Congressional District Democratic primary, comes this tidbit about state Sen. Michael Noland

Noland, also an attorney who has an MBA, pulled in about $76,000 from the state and $10,000 from his law practice in 2014, according to his financial disclosure statement. Noland cited “financial hardship” in 2014 when he modified his mortgage through a federal assistance program that helps homeowners reduce monthly payments and avoid foreclosure.

In an interview, Noland said his family faced a number of financial obligations, including student loans and private school tuition for his daughter. The senator called back the next day to add that his family struggled after then-Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn zeroed out lawmakers’ salaries during a 2013 budget fight. Lawmakers went two months without paychecks before a judge ruled the move unconstitutional and the money was paid out.

Also in 2014, Noland got $8,700 from the city of Elgin as part of its energy-efficiency revolving loan program. Noland said the money was used in large part to buy an energy-efficient furnace. City officials said he was one of 19 homeowners who took part in the program, which was open to all qualified applicants.

And yet, Quinn has endorsed Noland.

* Meanwhile, from a press release…

A new poll shows small businessman Raja Krishnamoorthi has bolstered his lead in the Democratic primary for Congress in the 8th District of Illinois that includes the northwest Chicago suburbs.

Krishnamoorthi has the support of 55 percent of voters with State Sen. Mike Noland at 17 percent and Villa Park President Deb Bullwinkel with 9 percent. Undecided voters accounted for 19 percent of the poll. The margin of error was +/- 4.9 percentage points in the poll taken by GBA Strategies. […]

Taken March 3-6 by GBA Strategies, this live poll of 400 likely Democratic voters asked 8th District voters in the northwest Chicago suburbs which candidate they would vote for if the election were held today.

The poll results follow fundraising reports filed by the candidates last week with the Federal Elections Commission and revealing that Krishnamoorthi has $1,019,784 cash on hand compared to $63,357 for Noland and $3,403 for Bullwinkel.

…Adding… Raja’s campaign claims he’s also leading in Noland’s own Senate district 47-32.

    At risk of sounding like an overpriveleged jerk, &86,000 really isn’t a whole lot.


  2. - Johnny Justice - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 1:01 pm:

    Noland is a great public servant and would make a fantastic Congressman. Unfortunately, all that matters is your ability to raise massive amounts of money, and Noland doesn’t seem to be so good at that. Looks like the 8th Dist. will have the best Comgresscritte money can buy!

    “$86,000 really isn’t a whole lot”

    In 2014, the average per capita income in Illinois was $30,019. https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/table/PST045215/17

    Congresscritter, that is.


  5. - Kane County Katie - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 1:05 pm:

    Noland trailing in his own senate district?! His base for next week is slowly disappearing.


  6. - Jake - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 1:07 pm:

    Especially in this race, Noland keeps pushing that because he’s the only legislator - he should be Congressman. But blame Quinn and no base of supporters. What a legislator.


  7. - Betsy - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 1:07 pm:

    Johnny Justice — Noland had no problem taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from leadership and the state party to run for the General Assembly. It’s not like he was playing a game before in the state Senate where money didn’t play a role. When you run for Congress, you just can’t get that large of a chunk of change from leadership like you can when you run for the Senate. Not a new rule. That’s the way it has been. Senator Kyle McCarter is finding that out now too.


  8. - Six Degrees of Separation - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 1:08 pm:

    In 2014, the average per capita income in Illinois was $30,019.

    Equating to a $120k annual income for a family of 4. An attorney with an MBA is often into the healthy 6 figures; I’d wonder what Noland is doing wrong to be making such a paltry income.


  9. - DuPage Danny - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 1:13 pm:

    =Unfortunately, all that matters is your ability to raise massive amounts of money, and Noland doesn’t seem to be so good at that=

    Money equals resources. Resources equals sharing message with many voters. Noland is not good at fundraising because he doesn’t have a good message.

    To quote Rich from yesterday, the rule of thumb is if you’re not on TV, you don’t exist.

  11. - Politix - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 1:29 pm:

    MrJM-yes, I get it. Just meant $86k isn’t a ton of money when you’re raising a family in the Chicago metropolitan area.


  12. - Michelle Flaherty - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 1:55 pm:

    But Quinn was Noland’s floor leader


  13. - Liberty - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 1:57 pm:

    It helps to understand what your quoting:
    “Per capita income is the mean money income received in the past 12 months computed for every man, woman, and child in a geographic area.” same source

    median or “most likely is $57K compare for example ISU where the median salary is slightly under 50k

    After yesterday, I am not trusting any polling. But, I see Raja’s commercials every day and have received at least 10 mailers from him, as opposed to 1 from Noland and 0 from Bullwinkle. Having met Raja I can tell you whoever did those commercials is a miracle worker. They make him seem very likeable.


  15. - lauralocco - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 2:33 pm:

    Elgin resident - Noland volunteers have been sharing with everyone for weeks that they have the advantage. But every report says otherwise. Elgin Dems are getting frustrated - most likely staying out of disappointment.


  16. - JoanP - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 3:03 pm:

    “his family faced a number of financial obligations, including student loans and private school tuition for his daughter.”

    There are always public schools.


  17. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 3:26 pm:

    Quinn Endorsement went a long way for Noland…


  18. - Politix - Wednesday, Mar 9, 16 @ 3:29 pm:

    Elgin public schools are terrible. In the Chicago suburbs you either pay higher taxes to live in a town with good public schools or you move somewhere cheaper and pay private tuition.

    I don’t have a dog in this fight. Just sayin.


  19. - IL08 Voter - Thursday, Mar 10, 16 @ 10:12 am:

    Deb: no where to be found
    Noland: every time he makes the headlines, it’s never on message
    Raja: amazing tv ad
