The Republican bold enough to challenge six-term incumbent Democrat Jack Franks is holding a beans and franks fundraiser on August 13th.
As is befitting a fundraiser, expenses will be kept low in order to maximize the amount that will be available to spend on the upcoming campaign.
The pitch for contributions follows:
We are gearing-up for the home stretch. Little more than 100 days left until a mid-term election which will make 1994 look like child’s play.
We are holding a BBQ Beans and Franks party to be held on Friday the 13th of August. We anticipate this will be a “bad luck day” for our opponent.
Please bring your family and especially your children to this old-fashioned family BBQ.
What: BBQ Beans and Franks party
Where: 7109 Hawthorn Lane, Spring Grove, IL
When: Friday, August 13, 2010 6pm – 8:30pm
Why: Running for State Representative is VERY expensive. Yard Signs, T-Shirts, Bumper Stickers, & Campaign Literature are necessary tools to winning the race.
Cost: A freewill offering will be collected at the sign-up table in order to support John’s Campaign and provide Better and More Responsive Government for the Hard Working Men and Women and the families of McHenry County.
Our Our opponent recently held a fundraiser hosted by Mayor Daley and Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart in Lincoln Park; Far, Far Away from the good people of McHenry County. The cost was as high as $5,000.00 per plate.
If you cannot attend the party, please consider a contribution. We have two ways you can contribute:
The Committee to
Elect John O’Neill
3608 W. Clover Av.
McHenry, IL 60050
Naturally, he includes the information required by state law:
Paid for by the Committee to Elect John O’Neill. A copy of our report filed with the State Board of Elections is (or will be) available for purchase from the State Board of Elections, Springfield, Illinois. State law requires that we report the occupation and name of the employer of any individual who contributes over $500. Contributions are not tax deductible.
I’d suggest $50 would be an appropriate contribution…unless you can afford more.
