Last night I posted the following article:
Now I have found a comment under that article from Tonya Franklin, which is worth reading:
“I fought hard for a chance to run tonight against Jack Franks.
“I will find out tomorrow if they will give me a shot.
“I just want to have a chance.
“I am not buying the vote….I still have to get signatures, raise funds and convince people to vote for me.
“Feels like I am asking for their right arms.
“I am the one that has to do all the work.
“Eye opening experience.
“I will not give up.
“My district is ready for someone to represent them.
“A 14 yr career politician and trial attorney, is not a true representation of our district.
“I believe that I have more to offer as a representative of those in our district in life experience and being
- a wife
- health care worker
- medical instructor
“I have owned 3 small businesses, a training center for medical professionals.
“I have built homes with my bare hands, been a single mom for 10 years.
“I am a grandmother, my husband served in the Military for 24 yrs.
“I actually believe that I am more representative of our communities than a wealthy trial attorney that has actually spent the last 14 yrs in Springfield.
“Here I am, ready and waiting to work for the Republicans.
“I believe we could energize the party, not only in Illinois but across the country, people want to know they have a voice and that their vote counts.
“The clock is ticking.”
