ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL – June 4, 2012 – Three recently slated candidates exceeded their goals by several hundred signatures during petition circulation. The candidates are Curt Renz (D-53, Arlington Hts.) and Richard Rudd (D-54, Palatine) for State Representative and David Page (D-27, Arlington Hts.) for State Senate. All three filed their candidacies with the State Board of Elections on June 4.

“The incredibly positive response we got while collecting signatures shows that voters want regular, hard-working Illinoisans to get down to Springfield and blow away the partisan hot air that is crippling our state,” said Rudd. “Our incumbent Tea Party State Rep has shown he’s more adept at dictating women’s healthcare than he is at keeping Illinois’ job growth on track. I plan to fix that.”

“I had numerous folks tell me they tend to vote Republican but they are just plain tired of the do-nothing antics of today’s Tea Party GOP,” said Renz. “Taxpayers know it’s time to vote for the right candidate regardless of party.”

“It’s time to get this state back on fiscal track and stop kicking important decisions down the road for another day,” said Page. “In the final days of this past spring session, Republicans unfortunately produced a lot of sound bites but not much action toward workable, bipartisan solutions.”

Candidates cannot circulate petitions before they are slated. Page and Renz were slated on May 12. Rudd was slated on May 26. Scores of volunteers including the candidates’ friends and families as well as members of the Palatine and Wheeling Township Democratic organizations assisted in the effort.

In order to appear on the ballot for the November general election, slated candidates must complete the same signature requirements as primary election candidates. Election law requires a 500 signature minimum for State Representative candidates and a 1000 signature minimum for State Senate candidates.


David Page is a Certified Financial Planner and small business owner. He is also President of the Arlington Heights School District 25 Board. Page and his wife, Katie, have two daughters and he has volunteer coached their soccer teams for 16 seasons. Page grew up in the district and graduated from Hersey HS before attending Northern Illinois University and making his home in Arlington Heights.

Curt Renz is a Vietnam War veteran and has had a career in real estate and stock investing in addition to hosting a business markets program on WCIU-TV and authoring a book. He currently operates a website where subscribers can learn about his advice for the stock market. Renz graduated from Palatine HS before being drafted by the Army. He currently resides in Arlington Heights.

Richard Rudd is a professional carpenter and has lived in Palatine for the past 16 years. He and his wife, Dianna, have three children — one who recently graduated Palatine HS, one attending the University of Illinois at Chicago and another who graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Rudd has also coached junior bowling and was a Cub Scout leader.
