Organizations & Individuals Endorsing Robert Young

Representative Maurice West

I support Rob Young because he’s an independent thinker who has a passion for the people of the 17th district. He understands what true representation looks like and he’s committed to bringing civility, honesty, and integrity to the Winnebago County Board. It needs to be people over politics in the 17th - and Rob is going to do just that.

Mayor Thomas McNamara

Rob is a small business owner who knows first hand the importance of workforce development, of living within his budget, and making difficult decisions to benefit his 100 employees. Rob will take those same values and principles to the board room and look out for our greatest asset, our people. Rob will focus on fighting crime, reducing taxes, building neighborhoods and bringing jobs to our community. Join me in supporting Rob Young for the County Board.

"AFSCME Council 31... is proud to endorse Mr. Young, a candidate whose life's work illustrates a clear value for the rights of working families and the strength a community can possess when workers' voices are heard."

Rockford Register Star Editorial Board

"Robert Young, president of Midwest Packaging & Container, first caught our attention when he ran for the Rock Valley College board of trustees last year. We said when we endorsed him then that he was the prototype for the kind of person we like to see run for elected office: smart, successful and homegrown... we believe Young can be a leader on the board..."


"If you haven't already voted please support these labor-friendly candidates when you stop by the polls. We need to elect candidates and causes that help working men and women, but we can't do it without your help!"
