In Bathalto Wood River Township Area

At an event for Kurt Prenzler, CPA running for re-election as Madison County Treasurer in Bathalto. Also, here I am with Mike Babcock, Wood River Township Supervisor. Just about 10 months ago I met Mike when I volunteered to walk a precinct in East Alton for his re-election.

In Bethalto with the Riverbend 912 group. Thanks to Kathy Wassink for running such a big meeting. I’ve been around politics for a while, but last night I stood by the door after my speech and watched every single person take a sign. We had to go out to my truck twice, because we kept running out of stuff. People want things to change.

Proud To Have Won the Jackson County Straw Poll

Wow! I won the Jackson County straw poll last night more than 2 to 1 in Murphysboro. Thanks to Chairman Gloria Pereira de Campos, Sharee Langenstein (who sent me the news) and all my other friends in Jackson County. So sorry I couldn’t be there as I had events in other parts of the state.  Thank you all for your support.

Wauconda Township GOP Posts Their 2014 Endorsements

The Wauconda Township Republican Club ( http://waucondagop.com/ ) posts the following message to its members and the public:

The Wauconda Township Republican Club had their 2014 Primary Candidate Endorsement Vote on Jan. 14.   

The Theme of the Evening was Reform Promoted With New Energy.

Each of the candidates for the following offices were discussed at length by the club membership and received in excess of the required 70% of the vote needed for endorsement.

Jeri Atleson is endorsed for Lake County Treasurer and Bob Grogan is endorsed for Illinois State Treasurer. Jim Oberweis is endorsed for U.S. Senate and for Republican candidate for governor,  the WTRC endorses Bruce Rauner.

Both Jeri Atleson (Lake Co. Treasurer) and Bob Grogan (State Treasurer) are CPA’s and bring real world experience in the proper handling of funds to these offices.

Jim Oberweis is a veteran of several campaigns and has the “thick skin” and singularity of purpose necessary to defeat Sen. Durbin. Bruce Rauner is eager to promote reform in state government and job creation throughout Illinois.

The WTRC will work hard to ensure that these candidates’ message is delivered throughout Wauconda Township.                                                It’s Time to Get Illinois Back On Track!

A Response To Recent Attacks By My Primary Opponent

On January 7th, I responded to incorrect accusations by my primary opponent about my current responsibilities as DuPage County Auditor.

"My opponent is again demonstrating that he doesn’t understand accounting or internal controls. His minion is sending around an email saying that I missed some recent controversies in DuPage.

The easy answer is all three incidents (at the DuPage Housing Authority, DuPage Election Commission and the DuPage Water Commission) occurred in governmental entities that according to statute I DON’T AUDIT! I understand the responsibility to do the job you are elected to, too bad my opponent does not.

ELECTION NOTE: You cannot pretend you are the Attorney General from the Treasurer’s office either. If you want to be AG you should run for that (oh yea, that was too hard wasn’t it?).
