January 6, 2010…Barrington, Ill. Tomorrow, at the Lake County Republican Party Forum, Dirk W. Beveridge (48), Republican candidate for the 8th Congressional District, will formally announce endorsements he has earned from a coalition of job creators, industry leaders and entrepreneurs.
“Dirk understands business issues and job creation,” explains Ron Bullock, Chairman and Owner, Bison Gear & Engineering Corp. and 2009 Chair, Illinois Manufacturers Association. “Our current Representative doesn’t and we can change that. Dirk Beveridge will represent the Eighth District with common-sense conservative values.”
Beveridge owns and operates a successful small business based in Barrington, Ill., serving national companies who desire growth, expansion and dynamic change.
“I believe Dirk Beveridge knows what it takes to build economies and direct change, effectively, the private sector way,” comments Richard Pepper, Chairman, The Pepper Companies, Inc.

I will work with them and other business leaders as we deliver a strong conservative voice for our district and our nation to Washington.”
