Here is the direct mail piece designed to “close the sale” with voters. 4,700 in all.
It would be interesting to compare the endorsements above with the ones Provenzano listed when he announced his candidacy last July.
In an email accompanying the images above, Provenzano wrote,
“On the last mail piece, I was going to add a photo of Keely Cat next to the Cat Tax comment but attempts to reach his agent went unanswered.”
Just in case you want to know who voted for the McHenry County Republican Cat Tax, you can find out here.
This is what Provenzano’s Saturday robo-call to 4,200 people said,
“Hi this is Nick Provenzano, wait don’t hang up, I hate these robo calls as much as you do, but I have a tax alert message that you need to hear.
“I’m sure your household budget was much like mine, growing smaller everyday, and finding ways to save out of pure necessity. And yet the County board voted to spend another 10 million dollars.
“This is Nick Provenzano and I’m running for County board to send a message. I feel enough is enough, together, let’s draw a line in the sand, right here, right now, let’s start here in McHenry County and tell our politicians that enough is enough. – No longer will we tolerate tax and spend politicians who just don’t get it. It’s time to cut spending and reduce taxes.
“My opponent doesn’t get it, she voted for that 10 million dollars in additional spending. She also voted in favor of pay raises for all County Employees, when most of us are either getting laid off or getting pay CUTS.
“I need your help and your vote to get this done, please select a Republican ballot and vote for Nick Provenzano on February 2nd.

Another robo-call from Irene Napier went to pro-lifers.
