Quinn's Running Mate Takes New Consulting Job
By AP
CHICAGO, IL - Illinois lieutenant governor candidate Paul Vallas has taken a new job with a Chicago-based consulting firm.

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn selected Vallas as his 2014 running mate last year.

At the time, Vallas was school superintendent in Bridgeport, Conn. He left that job earlier this year after a two-year tenure in which critics pushed for his ouster.

Izabela Miltko is spokeswoman for the Quinn campaign. She confirmed Saturday Vallas has taken a part-time consulting job with DSI Civic Financial Restructuring.

The company specializes in government and municipal restructuring and reorganization. Its vice president is John Filan, Illinois' former chief operating officer.

Vallas is the former Chicago Public Schools CEO.

Quinn and Vallas face Republican Bruce Rauner (ROW'-nur) and running mate Evelyn Sanguinetti in the November general election.
