You may have read that incumbent State Senator Suzi Schmitt, the one who seemed to throw around her weight when calling 911 about a domestic argument, decided not to run for re-election.
Now Tea Party leader Lennie Jarratt is announcing his intentions to seek the seat.
You can bet that Establishment Republicans, who are supporting former Republican State Central Committeeman Bob Neal’s son Joe, will not want him elected.
Here is the press release:
Linwood “Lennie” Jarratt Launches Campaign
(Round Lake, IL – November 7, 2011) Lennie Jarratt is officially announcing his candidacy for the 31st State Senate District.
I am running on the platform of supporting families, not government.
Too many families in the 31st State Senate District are losing their jobs and homes due to the bad policies coming from Springfield.
These bad policies now have Illinois ranked in the 48th worst financial position.
Springfield is broke and their only solution it to squeeze more money from families with higher income taxes, high gas taxes, and internet taxes that destroyed extra income for many home based businesses.
These policies slow the startup of many small businesses started by families and negatively affect the 1.1 million Illinois small businesses with 5 or less employees.
My track record of holding local officials accountable for their actions puts Springfield on notice that I am coming to change the culture and end the back room deals.
Together, we can restore fiscal sanity and once again have Springfield policies supporting families, not government.
