With Melinda Bush winning the 31st District state Senate, I for one was very pleased with the results. It was an extremely close race and before the early votes were counted, I had thought Neal had won.

I was for Bush winning due to the fact that I felt as if she had more experience, with being a Lake County board member prior to the election, while Neal's expertise deals with being a transportation and infrastructure specialist.

They were also similar in their opinions on issues such as jobs and the economy, one of the important issues in this election, with both claiming that more businesses should be created in Illinois in order to make more jobs, which would improve economic growth.

It was difficult to predict the winner of this race, especially since neither were incumbents and had the advantage.

Nearing the end of this race, Neal chose to accuse Bush of voting for a tax increase of $9.6 million, which was a bad tactic to use in my opinion. Bush won this race in a fair manner. She stated reasons as to why she deserved the state Senate seat, rather than criticizing the opponent, which is what Neal had done.
