Due to lack of sufficient support amongst the local Democratic Party for my candidacy, as well has my own health issues, I decided yesterday not to file petitions I'd collected for the purpose of running for county board in the 6th District. I would like to thank those who did offer support and encouragement, and particularly those who made financial contributions to my campaign.
Unfortunately, as I proceeded with my campaign I found support for my efforts to be less then adequate to the task I had wished to dedicate myself towards. I will hope to contribute my time and efforts in support of the other candidates who did file, and in promoting Democratic values and the issues believe in.
In the coming days I will consider what to do with the money remaining in my campaign fund, and the unused materials. For further information contact:
Due to poor health, I must cancel my planned Fundraiser for tonight, at Crandall's Restaurant. Further details will follow at a later time.
Before this Thursday's 7pm Joe Walsh Townhall meeting at the VFW in Woodstock, there will be a rally on the Square to oppose his radical agenda beginning at 5pm. We will wrap up in time for attendees to walk the two blocks to the VFW to attend the meeting.
Speakers and musicians are planned. Volunteers are needed. For information contact Terry Kappel, (815)669-7033.
