Roughly 100 Black Chicagoans attended at meet and greet with Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger November 3 on Chicago’s southside.
In an effort to reach out to Black voters, Munger took the opportunity to tell those gathered in Bronzeville at the Parkway Ballroom that she is proud to not be a career politician and she is determined to do what she believes is right despite the political backlash she may receive as a result of putting state legislators’ pay at the back of the line and releasing the Open Book resource.
Listen to an exclusive interview with Toure Muhammad below to learn more about Munger.

Leslie Munger speaks to crowd:
Bishop Larry D. Trotter, senior pastor of the Sweet Holy Spirit Church of Chicago announced he is adding Leslie Munger as the lone republican to his list of personal endorsements for the upcoming November 8th General Election. Bishop Trotter, who in 2014 announced his support of Hillary Clinton for President of the United States, views Munger’s candidacy for Illinois State Comptroller as necessary to mend the horrific budget stalemate in Springfield.
“Leslie has stood up to Governor Rauner, the Republicans and Democrats as it relates to withholding their legislative pay so that at risk providers could receive payments. These providers are often the lifeline to so many struggling families that are in need of these critical services.” says Bishop Trotter.
