OTTAWA, Ill. — State Rep. Lance Yednock, D-Ottawa, released the following statement:
“I am very disappointed that an elected official in LaSalle County would post such a divisive and hurtful message. It is imperative that all elected officials complete their legal duties to the fullest extent of the law regardless of their personal opinions, but this conduct forces many to question her ability to fairly serve everyone in our community.
“My office will be contacting the Attorney General’s office and the Human Rights Commission to determine if any laws were broken. I hope the county will investigate as well.”
