As the Northwest Herald publishes its first article (and a poll between Franks and Franklin on the lower right hand part of the page) on Tonya Franklin’s quest to be the only the second Republican opponent to “Chainsaw Jack” Franks in four elections, Franklin sent out an email:
Well, well, well: Mr. Incumbent, Jack Franks’ rapid response team IS paying attention!
While some have tried to ignore this campaign effort, apparently Jack’s team is right on top of things.
No business as usual for that well funded team!
They heard about our Victory Center on Wednesday and promptly left their welcoming calling card for us!
Now that was FUNNY!
Stay tuned, Tonya for Illinois WILL respond today.
“CHOICES PETITION TEAM”
200 Hours To Success!
Support Tonya For Illinois
The petition drive for Tonya Franklin to achieve ballot placement has only Saturday and Sunday to achieve 1500 signatures.
To achieve success, at this point, we must assume Tonya has been appointed to the ballot position.
The law requires a minimum of 500 good signatures from a maximum of 1500 total signatures. The petition filing MUST be in Springfield by 5pm on Monday June 4th, which means the petitions must leave the 63rd District for Springfield by 10am Monday morning.
Tonya’s supporters have provided a temporary Campaign Victory Center. From Wednesday through Sunday Night our Victory Center will be opened at
Vaughan’s Family Restaurant
790 S Eastwood D.(Hwy 47) Woodstock, IL
(815) 338-3391- For directions
On Thursday and Friday, we invite you to share refreshments while we meet, and call out to McHenry County Republican Committeemen for the important McHenry County Republican Party Special Meeting and vote at D’Andea’s on Saturday morning, (9:00 am June 2nd)
We will also coordinate the “200 Hours To Success” campaign!
200 Hours to Success-
The Challenge: Traditionally, in door to door campaigns, 10 signatures an hour can be collected.
Signatures collected door to door, are by far the most reliable and walking provides an opportunity to drop off literature to inform voters.
Based on the calculation of 10 signatures an hour, we need 150 walking hours to achieve 1500 signatures. Rounding that figure up to 200 walking hours provides extra cushion.
Two days… We need commitments for 200 walking hours, 100 each day.
We have just started counting and we have 15 hours committed to.
We have a structure in place to help us keep track of the commitments and the walk sheets.
Over the weekend we will have a notary available to assure each petition is properly notarized.
We have acquired neighborhood by neighborhood walk sheets for the entire 63rd House District.
That is over 19,000 Republicans.
We will hand these out from our Victory Center beginning Friday.
We will also have literature to hand out. Join us and we will provide you updated walk sheets for your precinct!
Our temporary Victory Center call-in number is 847-304-8800.
We invite you to bring your cell phone and help us to make this campaign a success as part of our response to Mr. Incumbent’s welcome message yesterday!
