In his latest mailing from State Rep. candidate David McSweeney, he uses red light cameras to ask, “Who can we trust to defend our rights?”
He uses the revenue-driven devices, co-sponsored by local Democrat Jack Franks, to promote his ability to stop “the uncontrolled growth of government.”
“Our rights could be gone in a flash,” his mailing reads.
This is the second time (the first was the week before Thanksgiving) he has tied himself to State Senator Dan Duffy’s campaign to ban red light cameras for right turn violations.
Strangely, no mention is made of the recently authorized Speed Cameras in Chicago.
McSweeney is facing off against State Rep. Kent Gaffney, whose appointment was opposed by Duffy, and Danielle Rowe for the term beginning January, 2013.
