When I saw this, I remember thinking, “It worked for Democratic Party candidate for lieutenant governor Scott Lee Cohen, why not for John O’Neill?”
O’Neill is running against veteran Democratic Party State Rep. Jack Franks.
So, if you are looking for a job, The Bell Tower Place at the Church of Holy Apostles is the place to be from 10 to 3.
Here is O’Neill’s press release:
With 1 in 10 McHenry County residents unemployed we are reminded of President Reagan’s words,
“A recession is when your neighbor loses his job, a depression is when you lose your job.”
Government bureaucrats spend a whole lot of time paying lip service to the plight of the unemployed but one area resident is actually doing something about it.
John O’Neill is running for State Representative, however, he is not waiting until he is elected to start working for the people of McHenry County. John has organized a Job Fair to help match local residents with local jobs.
“After having been unemployed for several months during 2009, I know what people are going through.” John says, “McHenry County has offered so much to my family and me, it is a pleasure to give something back and I can’t think of a better way to help people right now.”
The job fair will feature numerous businesses and entrepreneurs that can help local residents who are unemployed or under-employed replace the incomes lost during this time of economic troubles.
If you or someone you care about is out-of-work or struggling to pay their bills, please plan to attend the Job Fair sponsored by the John O’Neill for State Representative campaign.
It is kind of ironic that you would write that holding job fairs, “worked for Democratic Party candidate for lieutenant governor Scott Lee Cohen, why not for John O’Neill?”
Considering that Scott Lee Cohen spent $2 million dollars of his own money and then dropped out of the race, I would not use Cohen as an example of the poster boy for effective campaign startegy.
Cohen might have won the battle, but he lost the war.
