A key source within the Rock Island County Democrat Party has told QCNews.org that Jerry Lack, District Director for Rep. Cheri Bustos, has decided to leave her office after just thirty days. The source, speaking on a condition of anonymity, said that the departure was due to a stemming frustration over the lack of progress with opening the district offices and making in-district staff hires.

The source also said there was a growing discontent because Lack believed that Rep. Bustos was giving the DC office preferential treatment, in budgeting and staffing matters, over the in-district operations.

Lack, a well-respected member of the Rock Island County Democrat Party and senior aide to Rep. Lane Evans, was believed to be a key hire for Rep. Cheri Bustos. The source said that Lack will return to working for the Illowa Construction Labor and Management Council.

As of this writing, Bustos has only opened an office in Rock Island. On the campaign trail, Bustos promised to open offices in the Quad Cities, Peoria, Rockford, and Galesburg.
