Half-dozen Kirk staffers move over to Rauner
Jan 12, 2015 6:46 PM -
As Republican Bruce Rauner takes over as governor , he'll have the help of more than a half-dozen top staff who used to work for U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk. Rauner's chief of staff, Mike Zolnierowicz, worked as the Highland Park Republican's deputy chief of staff. And three of Rauner's four deputy chief of staff, as well as his downstate director and spokesman, are alumni of Kirk's office, too.
