The FUTURE for our children and grandchildren
depends upon HOW WE VOTE

To Our Neighbors in Precinct 11:
First, we would like to introduce ourselves. We are Sue and Rick Johnson, and we are the new, volunteer
Republican Precinct Committeemen for Precinct 11. In this position, our job is to provide you with election
information, to assess candidates, and to offer our recommendations. If you have any questions, our contact information is below.
This is a big moment for Illinois and your vote on Nov. 8 is absolutely critical. Since Gov. J.B. Pritzker took office, there have been 24 new taxes and fees implemented in Illinois that total more than $5 billion. (Illinois Policy Institute)
We need to turn out in large numbers at the polls to uphold our constitutional freedoms, safety and
Brief descriptions of qualified Republican candidates on the ballot are enclosed.
Here are some key issues of concern:
• The “Safe-T” Act. This law, which takes effect Jan. 1, is anything but safe. It will allow serious crimes to be
designated as “non-detainable” offenses, and allow the charged person back on the street without having to post bail. We need to tell our elected officials to repeal this act.
• Amendment 1 to our Illinois Constitution. If enacted, it will give unprecedented, permanent power to public employee Unions. Unions are already fully protected under Federal Law. In addition, the amendment is expected to cost each household an extra $2,100 in taxes per year, according to research by the Illinois Policy Institute. We strongly recommend a NO VOTE. (See enclosed materials for more information.)
• Public School Sex-Education. Democrat officials in Springfield voted in May 2021 for SB818, a K-12 sexually explicit curriculum that was implemented in our schools this year. We need our schools to focus on academics.
You, as parents, can opt out your children from this sexually explicit curriculum. We encourage you to attend monthly schools board meetings to voice your opinions. (Go to illinoisreportcard.com to see poor test scores.)
So, what you can do …
• Attend a We the People meeting, a growing grassroots group that meets each Monday in Cary. Go to
“WeThePeopleOfMcHenryCounty.com” (also WTPOMC.com). This group was started by local
grandparents, and provides ways to get informed on government policy and legislation.
• Read the McHenryCountyBlog.com website, started by retired Republican State Rep. Cal Skinner, which
provides a wide variety of public interest matters.
• Read faith, family and freedom topics on the Illinois Family Institute website (ilinoisfamily.org). Also, the
illinoisfamilyaction.org website makes it easy for someone to review proposed legislation and look at
how their elected official voted on bills.
• Be an election judge or poll watcher during early voting or election day. You can go to the McHenry
County Clerk’s website for more information. (mchenrycountyil.gov)
Thank you for your interest to be informed on key issues and candidates who appear on the Nov. 8, 2022, ballot.
We have included candidate information in this packet to help you make informed decisions when voting.
