State Rep. David McSweeney is retiring after four terms in the Illinois House.
Republicans nominated unopposed Barrington Hills Village President Marty McLaughlin in the GOP Primary.
No one filed in the Democratic Party Primary.
This summer, Island Lake’s Marci Suelzer got permission to run and she successfully gathered enough petition signatures to gain ballot access.
Suelzer gained Mike Madigan’s financial support and put out five positive mailings before McLaughlin mailed one.
Since I put the hit pieces first on the last article, I’ll publish McLaughlin’s come back first, then, Suelzer’s new hit pieces. (I do not know in what order the mailings were delivered by either candidate.)
Now we, move to on to the mailings paid for by Mike Madigan’s Illinois Democratic Party.
There were three pounding McLaughlin for not paying his propety taxes on time.
Of course, such late payments could be the result of cash flow considerations.
Real estate taxes paid late have one percent per month interest tacked onto the original amount owed.
Again, I do not know the order of the hit pieces.
There were also two mailings saying McLaughlin doesn’t like women, both financed by Mike Madigan’s Illinois Democratic Party.
In addition, there was a letter mailed by Breaker Press from the Marci Suelzer Campaign Committee urging early voting.
