Brian Sager Loans $18,000 to Campaign

Woodstock Mayor Brian Sager has infused his Political Action Committee with three loans totaling $18,000 since the first of the year.

Another $1,000 was donated by Giordano & Associates of Woodstock.

He did not open his campaign fund until February 8th. He calls it People for Brian Sager.

Keeping his books is Jack Franks’ patronage employee Bridget Geenen, who has the position of “manage[r?].”

Sager opponent, the only Democratic State Central Committeeman who did not vote to re-elect Mike Madigan and a fervent Bernie Sanders for President supporter, Peter Janko, has not filed any financial paperwork with the Illinois State Board of Elections.

None is required until a candidate spends or raises $5,000.

  1. Do-gooder politicians such as in Woodstock can be causing more harm than good. Rather than encouraging shoppers to bring in their own bags, greeters at store entrances ought to turn back any shopper coming into store with so-called reusable bags, fabric or plastic. Any bags sneaked in, such as in a woman’s big purse, should be identified by store clerks at checkout counters and shoppers denied not only their use but putting these on the counter. The 10 cent bag tax needs to be repealed.

    Per joint study by universities in Arizona and California in 2010:

    “Reusable grocery bags can be a breeding ground for dangerous food-borne bacteria and pose a serious risk to public health, according to a joint food-safety research report issued today by the University of Arizona and Loma Linda University in California.

    The research study – which randomly tested reusable grocery bags carried by shoppers in Tucson, Los Angeles and San Francisco – also found consumers were almost completely unaware of the need to regularly wash their bags.

    “Our findings suggest a serious threat to public health, especially from coliform bacteria including E. coli, which were detected in half of the bags sampled,” said Charles Gerba, a UA professor of soil, water and environmental science and co-author of the study. “Furthermore, consumers are alarmingly unaware of these risks and the critical need to sanitize their bags on a weekly basis.”

    Bacteria levels found in reusable bags were significant enough to cause a wide range of serious health problems and even death. They are a particular danger for young children, who are especially vulnerable to food-borne illnesses, Gerba said.

    The study also found that awareness of potential risks was very low. A full 97 percent of those interviewed never washed or bleached their reusable bags, said Gerba, adding that thorough washing kills nearly all bacteria that accumulate in reusable bags.”

  2. Anyone know when Sager will make a statement that him and Buttigieg have a lot in common?

  3. Is that $18,000 part of the $25,000 a year patronage job he got from Jack Franks?

  4. Wow, that’s a bad Botox job!

    Is “Bri” trying to recapture his misspent youth?

  5. And this is an old pic.

    He looks even weirder now!

    and is twice as creepy!
