SPRINGFIELD – March 5, 2013. Lt. Governor Sheila Simon issued this statement today on the death of her mentor, former state Comptroller Dawn Clark Netsch. Netsch was the first woman to win the Democratic nomination for governor.

”Dawn Clark Netsch was a hero of mine since the early 1980s and a friend and mentor ever since," Simon said. "We served on the board of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform together and collaborated on reform issues for many years. She was straight forward, a straight shooter and great at explaining state issues. She was not just a public servant, but a teacher. She will be missed."
