Grundy County State’s Attorney Jason Helland is the campaign coordinator for Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford who is running as a Republican candidate for governor.

“I am proud to have Jason Helland as a part of my team,” Rutherford said in a news release. “We will work together to bring Illinois residents a financially stable state government and a better business climate where we will lower the unemployment rate. I want to make this state a place that our families will, once again, want to call home for future generations.”

Rutherford’s campaign for governor has county coordinators throughout the state. Helland lives in Mazon with his wife, Sara DePodesta-Helland, and their daughter, Harper.

“I am honored to be a coordinator for the Dan Rutherford for Governor campaign,” Helland said in the release. “Treasurer Rutherford will be a tireless worker for private sector employment in our state. He’s going to protect our wallet. He will work to streamline state government. I look forward to helping him become the next governor of Illinois.”
