Letter: Cast vote for DeKalb Township board

Published: Friday, March 22, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

To the Editor:

The April 9 election is less than a month away, I ask you to join me in voting for the only independent candidates on the ballot for DeKalb Township board.

Cast your vote for the candidates who will bring fresh new faces to the board, faces that better represent the diversity of the people of DeKalb. Cast your vote for a more open Township Board that will welcome public input on our Township website, in our interactions out in the community, and at more conveniently-timed monthly meetings. Cast your vote for the Independent candidates for DeKalb Township Board who will use Social Service Grant funding to inject money directly back into our local economy where it can do the most good; and who will provide the public a more transparent Annual Town Budget (where the current year can be readily compared to the previous year).

Please don’t let the sneaky tactics of the self-serving opposition confuse you. Their signs may be blue, red, or green, they’ll use any color that will get them votes.

They may have created a new party, but it’s the same old people. Even their young candidate for Supervisor has proven his extreme credentials by Co-Chairing the 2012 Draft Trump campaign in Illinois*. Do these candidates truly represent the people of our township?

On April 9, we have a chance to get much-needed transparency in our Township board by electing competent, credible, and committed Independent candidates.

These diverse Independent candidates are working for your vote, visiting your neighborhood, going door-to-door, introducing themselves to you and your neighbors.

On Election Day please vote for Jim Luebke for township supervisor, Rich Gallati, Cory Christopherson, Ric Amesquita, LaMetra Curry, Kevin Flavin, Lisa King and Nancy Teboda for DeKalb Township Board.
