Nancy Zettler is running for State Senate against appointed State Senator Don Dewitte.
Whoever supplied these two mailings certainly did not want their names known, so they ripped them off before leaving this at Republican Headquarters at the tip of the “V” in the Crystal Lake Plaza (my first State Rep. office in 1973).
(If anyone has complete copies or other mailings from Zerttler or opponent Don DeWitte they could scan and send, that would be appreciated. The email address is on the left of the screen)
Believed to be the first of the two (with the number 24 under the torn off mailing permit) is a postcard.
On this post card Nancy Zettler takes Republican Don DeWitte to task for thinking “Illinois Should Impose New Taxes on Seniors’ Retirement and Health Insurance.”
On the back of this Nancy Zettler post card Zettler is seen filling up her car stating, “Republican State Senator DeWitte Wants to Raise Your Gas Taxes.”
There was a later four-sided mailing numbered 35 you can see below:
Democrat Nancy Zettler claims, “You Can’t Trust Senator DeWitte on Taxes,” adding Don DeWette said he would not raise taxes when he ran for office in St. Charles,”but once he was Mayor, the city created a new sales tax on alcohol.”
On the back of the four-sided mailing, Nancy Zettler makes the point that Don DeWitte”supports a new tax on seniors’ retirement savings and taxing their health insurance,” while she does not.
Nancy Zettler’s message that State Senator Don DeWitte promised not to raise taxes when running for Mayor of St. Charles and then “created a new sales tax on alcohol” is reiterated on the inside left page of this mailing.
On the inside right of her four page mailing, Nancy Zettler writes of changes she wants to make, if elected. They include increasing school funding and not paying legislators if they don’t pass a budget.
