That’s what a Friend of McHenry County Blog from Cary found on a mailing for Dee Beaubien today.
It was financed by the Illinois Democratic Party.
“They’re not trying very well to hide it,” was the comment that accompanied the information.
But, not many people would flip the post card to see who send it.
The message below it is next to the address.
Beaubien says she is not a politician, fed up with both political parties who don’t get anything done, will work across party lines, will donate her salary to charity, running as an independent to give voters a real choice, will work to cut legislators salaries, fight for property tax relief, not running to climb the political ladder or personal enrichment.
You can bet the campaign themes are stated in this first mailing.
Dee Beaubien is, of course, running as an “Independent.”
If this trend continues, I think I’ll follow John Kass’ lead and identify her as Dee Beaubien (Ind.-Madigan).
Beaubien is running against Dave McSweeney, who won the Republican Primary Election, beating Beaubien’s favorite, Kent Gaffney.
There are now 18 precincts in the McSweeney-Dan Duffy District for which McHenry County Republican leaders have not appointed Precinct Committeemen. Read about 17 of them here.
