That’s what this email to area residents said:
State Government in Illinois is a fiscal mess. One party dominates the Legislature, the Governor’s Office and the City of Chicago, which has the highest sales tax of any city in the nation.
The Democrat controlled Illinois Senate has passed legislation which would create a new tax on services for the entire state.
I am a nominee for Illinois State Treasurer.
It’s time to have the State’s Chief Financial Officer stand up and lead.
In addition to being a very good steward of the resources in the Treasury, I intend to use the position as a bully pulpit for jobs in Illinois.
I appreciate your support in helping me maintain a strong political presence.
I would be honored by your attendance at a breakfast in support of our state-wide effort on Friday, October 15, 2010 at the 1776 Restaurant in Crystal Lake beginning with coffee at 7:15 AM.

You may mail checks payable to DRCC, 220 W. Howard, Pontiac, IL 61764. Proceeds benefit the Dan Rutherford Campaign Committee.
I hope to see you and thank you for your support of our bid for State Treasurer.
Illinois State Treasurer
