Jerry Costello

Mike Madigan’s given Jerry Costello nearly $200,000, so it’s no surprise that Costello has supported Mike Madigan as Illinois Speaker three times. Like the rest of Madigan’s members, Costello followed orders and held his own school districts hostage to bail out Chicago. And Costello tried to force a $1,000 tax hike on families in his district by voting for Madigan’s phony budget that was nearly $8 billion in the hole.

Jerry Costello has shown that all he’s willing to do is back the broken status quo.
