Here is the letter that Republican Precinct Committeeman Shawn Green is distributing to his constituents:
Fellow McHenry County Voter:
This year, unlike most prior election years, your vote is extremely powerful and could help determine the course of our county and our state for years to come. If you are happy with higher taxes, fewer jobs, lower wages, increasing debt, and greater government intrusion on your personal liberty, read no further; you have likely already decided to vote for democrat candidates who will continue these policies and give Speaker Madigan an unbreakable foothold in McHenry County.
However, if you want to restore some balance and common sense to Springfield and prevent the Chicago democrats’ attempted takeover of McHenry County, there are two crucial votes to cast:
- Steve Reick for State Representative and
- Mike Walkup for County Board Chairman.
Steve Reick will fight to fix Illinois’ countless problems, focusing specifically on taxes, education, and public pension reform, and will provide a much-needed check on Speaker Madigan’s power.
Steve has made a successful career for himself in the private sector and is truly running to represent the will of McHenry County residents and to help turn Illinois around.
Steve’s opponent, on the other hand, is a typical career politician who currently holds a patronage job with the state (thanks to political favors and back room deals between Jack Franks and Rod Blagojevich) and is running for State Representative to further enrich himself on the taxpayers’ dime.
Please join me in voting for the person who will represent OUR interests, not his own – vote Steve Reick for State Representative.
Mike Walkup is a tax fighter – proven by his actions, not just purported in a campaign slogan.
Mike has been a true independent voice on the County Board, choosing to stand up for what he believes is best for the residents and businesses of McHenry County rather than blindly following the party line. I
n sharp contrast, Mike’s opponent has spent the last two decades in Springfield with no meaningful accomplishments to his name. Mike Walkup’s opponent claims to be a tax fighter, yet he helped Speaker Madigan, the quintessential tax-and-spend politician, establish himself as the most powerful figure in Illinois government.
Mike Walkup’s opponent, despite his attempts to convince us otherwise over the years, has been obedient to Madigan for the last two decades and will continue to do Madigan’s bidding if allowed to chair the McHenry County Board.
Let’s keep Chicago politics in Chicago and preserve McHenry County’s status as a bright spot in Illinois.
Please join me in voting Mike Walkup for County Board Chairman.
