Letter: A variety of endorsements

By on March 15, 2012

As voters work more and more to pay their ever increasing mortgages and taxes, they have less time to carefully review the credentials and platforms of the candidates. This is where the Kane County Conservative Coalition can help.

Established in 2002, we have been active at the grassroots in causes ranging from pro-life, to gun owner rights, to rooting out corruption in government.

Kane County Conservative Coalition’s mission is to support men and women who best represent fiscal and social conservative values. Here are our 2012 Endorsements:

Chris Lauzen for Kane County Board Chairman—Illinois’ leading fighter against waste, fraud and abuse in the state Senate now wants to be the taxpayer watchdog for the county who freezes or lowers our county property tax burden.

Tom Hartwell for Kane County Circuit Clerk—Attorney and MBA, knows the court system and has the technology and business acumen to run the office in the most cost effective way.

Dr.Bob Tiballi for Kane County Coroner— Shouldn’t the coroner be a doctor? Highly regarded medical investigator with a specialty in infectious diseases and pediatrics. His successful medical practice handles much more money and more employees than the Kane Coroner’s office.

Terry Hunt for Kane County Auditor—37 years accounting experience, 14 years as a Chief Financial Officer for a large company, and longtime farm owner. Big supporter of open government and transparency initiatives.

Cliff Surges for Senate District 33—Pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, pro-gun owner rights candidate. Business background in insurance industry. Opposes Karen McConnaughay’s brand of insider politics.

And for President—Rick Santorum … www.ricksantorum.com and www.santorumillinois.com.
For County Board—District 2, Sal Abbate; District 10, Susan Starrett; District 16, Robert Sauceda; District 22, Doug Scheflow.
