Thompson and Edgar Letter Endorses Kirk Dillard

During the first week to circulate petitions, what should in my mailbox arrive?

It’s a letter from the Kirk Dillard for Governor Committee signed by former Governors Jim Edgar and Jim Thompson.

Edgar was Thompson’s Legislative Liaison before being named Secretary of State and Dillard was Edgar’s Chief of Staff.

You can see the letter below:

In boldface type is the reason for their endorsement:

Dillard is the only Republican candidate who can win in November.

The envelop delivers the essential message, but it seems to me that the names of those endorsing Dillard are smaller than they should be. People throw away “junk” mail quite quickly.

  1. The “Honorable Cal Skinner?”

    Not just one, but two former Governors reaching out to Cal??

    The NW Herald no less, via Kevin Carver, now openly acknowledge Cal Skinner’s blog and his excellent ‘watchdog’ reporting that we should all thank Cal for.

    (Cal you should charge a $10.00 a year subscription to your blog for all the hard work it takes to literally bring the happenings of McHenry County complete with the very difficult to upload photos directly to the tax payers living room.)

    Now, the Chicago news press is using Cal’s blog as a ‘library’ of sorts. Just google “McHenry County Blog” and see who comes up the most.

    I just want people to know, how difficult and time consuming it is to produce just one story per day such as a newspaper employee might do.

    Cal posts at least five or more stories every day, complete with photos which help complete the story lines and bring we, the readers, directly into the life of the story.

    Not everybody reading your blog agrees with your point of view, yet you provide a forum for open debate. At minimum you provide thought provoking topics which is terribly lacking in today’s press.

    Congratulations on your obvious rise and recognition as a recognized ‘watch dog’ for the tax payers of McHenry County.

    Thank you!

    Dave

  2. P.S. Cal, today just happens to be my birthday so I’m being extra nice and I get a day off from acting like a ‘nut job!’

    So don’t get to used to it! I shall revert to my old indignities at the strike of midnight tonight!!

    All the best Cal!

    Signed,

    “Nut Job!”

    The ‘true’ birth son of Nostradamus! Keep watching!!

  3. Hello Cal, I do not care who endorses whom, if you want my vote someone better give me a better reason than just “to win”.
