On Wednesday, October 10th, the Chicago Sun-Times endorsed Mike Frerichs for Illinois State Treasurer.
Under Frerichs, investment earnings for the state investment portfolio rose from $4 million per month to $22 million per month, an increase of approximately 450 percent.
Frerichs also has done a commendable job of helping people in Illinois save for college and retirement. He completed an overhaul of Illinois’ college savings program last year and lowered fees. The changes earned rave reviews from investment analysts. Morningstar called the program “topnotch.” Frerichs, a Democrat, is the clear choice in this race.
