Dawn Clark Netsch Passes Away at 86


Dawn Clark Netsch has died.

 

The longtime Democratic politician was the first woman to become a major party nominee for governor of Illinois, when she ran unsuccessfully against Jim Edgar in 1994.

 

Netsch died early this morning after a battle with Lou Gehrig's disease.

 

She was well respected for her knowledge of state government and finance.

 

Prior to running for governor, she had served for years as a state senator, and then as comptroller.

 

She was also a delegate to the 1970 state constitutional convention.

 

Netsch was 86.
