    Thomas Castillo is running with other five democrats for Lt. Governor.

    Although he’s new to Illinois politics, Thomas Castillo seems determined to fight for the Lieutenant Governor spot left vacant by Pat Quinn in January, 2009. His main campaign issues, as listed on his official website, focus on jobs, child protection and eliminating property taxes for senior citizens over 72 years of age.

    The 33-year-old electrical worker attended Kinzie and St. Jane Elementary Schools and graduated from John F. Kennedy High School in the Garfield Ridge neighborhood.
