Quinn Chooses Vallas As Running Mate


Governor Pat Quinn has chosen former Chicago Public Schools CEO Paul Vallas to be his running mate in the 2014 election.

 

Vallas ran for governor in the 2002 Democratic primary, but lost to Rod Blagojevich.  Since then he has been in charge of the school districts in Philadelphia, New Orleans and Bridgeport, Connecticut.  But Vallas has reportedly maintained residency and voting status in the state of Illinois.

 

The selection is viewed as a surprise move, but Quinn says Vallas has a solid record for education reform and support of working families.  Vallas had been at the center of controversy in Bridgeport over whether he had the proper certification to run a school district in Connecticut.
