IL Comptroller puts Libertarian on transition team

Former Libertarian Candidate for Comptroller Tapped for Transition Team - Kitty Testa, Libertarian Republic:

December 8, 2016- "According to a press release issued by the newly installed Illinois Comptroller, Susana Mendoza, Claire Ball, the Libertarian candidate who also vied for the position during the election, has been named to Mendoza’s transition team....

"In a statement via Facebook Ball said, 'Before anyone thinks otherwise, let me make this perfectly clear and state that I *WILL* be running again in 2018 as the Libertarian candidate for state Comptroller. This transition team is to help get the new Comptroller up to speed so our state can, at the minimum, keep moving along. I want to help in any way that I can, so things don’t get worse, and help pinpoint some of the (many) issues that need to be addressed within the office'....

"This is a unique opportunity for a Libertarian candidate. Ball will be in the position to get a glimpse into the state-wide office she seeks and to influence its operations in a practical way."
