I am more than a week behind on Dee Beaubien’s and Dave McSweeney’s mailings, so I thought I might put them all in one article.
On October 5th Illinois Democrats put out a Put Springfield on a Spending Diet.” Good graphic of the capitol being squeezed at the top.
Dee Beaubien is the beneficiary of this mailing from Illinois Democrats. Good graphics and message.
On the address side is a photo of Beaubien talking to a man who appears to be in a warehouse or a big office supply store.
As will all mailings paid for by Illinois Democrats, Dee Beaubien is touted as an “Independent.” On this budget cutting piece, she says she will “protect taxpayers.”
The millionaire talks about ending taxpayer-funded health care benefits to “to retired politicians and judges who are already receiving general pensions.”
On Saturday, two David McSweeney pieces it mailboxes.
The first was about “hurting families.”
David McSweeney’s piece has a father comforting his daughter on the address side.
On the back is a pitch for
Dave McSweeney’s last week piece about hurting families advances the view that things will be better with a stronger economy, then outlines what he would do to accomplish that goal.
A second post card from McSweeney also arrived on last Saturday.
That is something no candidate wants to happen.
McSweeney’s second piece talks about teaching Springfield that there is no free lunch.
This is one of the first good graphics I have seen in a David McSweeney mailing. It has a plate full of $100 bills.
On the back is the message, “Unfortunately, Dee Beaubien believes you should pick up the tab…”
The theme that people should “Vote No on Dee Beaubien” is continued on the back from other mailings.
On Wednesday another McSweeney mailing was delivered.
It says Beaubien is ready to deliver for the Chicago bosses.
Chicago bosses are supporting Dee Beaubien because they (really just House Speaker and State Democratic Party boss Mike Madigan) expect Dee Beaubien to “deliver.”
The back uses pizza to drive home the “deliver” message.
“Say No on Dee Beaubien” appears on the back of this post card, too.
At the end of the week, Beaubien mailed two different pieces saying that McSweeney would cut money for Veterans.
The first came on Thursday. Paid for by the Democratic Party of Illinois, as usual. The 13th so far, if I understand the coding above the address.
The back of Dee Beaubien’s first Veterans’ piece has her talking with a Life Member of a Veterans organization.
On the back is a list of programs to slash–Education, Senior Services and Veterans–plus what to keep–Waste and Inefficiency and Duplicate Services–according to Beaubien.
Good graphic by the Illinois Democratic Party staff, even though no one in their right right mind would admit to wanting to keep wasteful spending.
The second piece designed to pull Veterans away from McSweeney, as usual, paid for by the Democratic Party, arrived on Friday
While Dave McSweeney is saying, “Vote NO on Dee Beaubien,” this Democratic Party piece says, “David McSweeney is WRONG for us.” A continuation of the theme that McSweeney is not like his constituents.
The back of Madigan’s fourteenth mailing implies that McSweeney will close the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The sign on the door of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs says, “Closed.” Dave McSweeney is blamed.
