An email from Orville Brettman to prospective constituents in McHenry County Board District 6:
Subject: Brettman offers true conservative choice .
The good news: Brettman offers true conservative choice for 6th District County Board voters
The bad news: there are two Franks-Democrat surrogates on the ballot posing as Republicans
If you’re hoping there’s at least one true Republican on the ballot for the McHenry County Board in the 6th District, we have good news.
There is – Orville Brettman.
Orville is a dyed-in-the-wool, no-nonsense conservative who not only talks conservative but backs it up with consistent conservative action.
Did you know that Orville worked on the Barry Goldwater campaign when Orville was only 16?
From that time to now, Orville Brettman has proven a strict adherent to the GOP platform.
That’s very good news and comforting for those who are tired of Rauner-ish, wishy-washy candidates who claim conservatism just as long as it takes to get elected.
Unfortunately, you’ll find those ‘other’ candidates on the ballot March 20, too.
You’ll find the names Michelle Aavang and Larry Smith on your ballet when you go to vote in the Republican primary but don’t be fooled by these posers.
In 2016, Smith distributed petitions for John Reinert, a County Board lacky of Jack Franks who now wants to play lapdog for Michael Madigan in Springfield.
However, 30% of the signatures Smith claimed to have collected were ruled fabrications.
Call it what you will, they were fake and that’s not the conservative way of doing business. That’s the way the Left does business – achieve your goals by any means.
Smith and Aavang had a chance to take a stand for right-over-wrong conservatism when Jack Franks introduced Chicago-style patronage hiring of Democrat bureaucrats to the McHenry County Board.
Not only did they fall in step with the Democrat but, par for the course, they also stayed home and abrogated their responsibility when Republicans on the County Board held a special meeting to stop Franks’ patronage hires of his friends and supporters.
Clearly, Franks can count on them.
Too bad we can’t.
Aavang has actually raised funds for Jack Franks.
How can she claim she’s a Republican when she’s openly supporting Democrats?
Is it any wonder Aavang and Smith look to Franks for their marching orders?
Thankfully, with Orville Brettman on the ballot you don’t have to worry about electing a secret Democrat.
Orville is a true conservative choice for the 6th District when you go to the polls March 20.
