Wilcox pays tribute to fathers who 'mold and develop sons and daughters of the future'
Craig Wilcox made sure to take time out from his busy campaign in District 32 on Father’s Day to salute "the men who mold and develop sons and daughters of the future."
The retired Air Force colonel and member of the McHenry County board, now running to replace retiring state Sen. Pam Althoff (R-McHenry), added in a post to Facebook “throughout history fathers have been a defining factor in how future generations develop, often taking a practical and no-nonsense role, exploring the outdoors, investigating how things work, or just playing catch.”
Finally, Wilcox added “being a father is a labor of love, strength and sacrifice. To my dad, and all dads…thank you for the love you have given, and continue to give us.”
Wilcox has based his campaign on restoring the strength of families and businesses across the state, all in hopes of slowing the growing issue of outmigration.
“The fact that businesses and families are fleeing Illinois reveals that something is systemically flawed in the way that this state operates,” he previously told the Lake County Gazette. “Illinois has already experienced a significant exodus of people, who have taken their talents and their tax dollars to other states that do not foster such an uncertain climate for both families and businesses. If we don't act to resolve this now, then the task of doing so in the future will only become more challenging.”
