Letter: Vote for Jeanne Ives

To submit a letter to the editor, email Charlotte@patch.com.

I have been volunteering on ' campaign for State Representative in District 42 in my free time.

I want to encourage you to vote for Jeanne because, in addition to her many qualifications (West Point graduate, military service, city councilwoman, precinct committeewoman, mother of five, economics background), I've had the opportunity to see the kind of person she really is. When Jeanne Ives talks about honor, it is not just empty words from another politician.

I have learned through the over the past few months how ugly the campaign process can be. However, time and again, I've seen Jeanne Ives choose to take the high road when her feet were held to the fire. We need people like Jeanne in office who can stick to their principles even when they are being attacked for them or when it would be easier to "go along to get along."

Without hesitation, I can say that Jeanne will be the kind of leader we need in Illinois State House of Representatives and will be a powerful advocate for the people of District 42.

I am proud to have worked on the Ives campaign.

Please remember to vote for Jeanne Ives this Tuesday, March 20 - and encourage your friends to do the same!

BTW, Jim, I see that your former opponent in your bid to serve on the city council and ( and now, who according to many I have chatted with, is well respected by his fellow members and Mayor Gresk) Todd Scalzo is not supporting Ms. Ives.

Thanks, Jim. Are you running for office anytime soon? Let's hold off till then, ok? Now back to real estate sales. Spring has sprung!

That is what I am praying for. This state is in enough trouble, we do not need more...

So, Jeanne Ives won and is getting ready to win in November. If elected, I hope she forces the posters here to learn how to spell, it makes for easier reading.
