Letter: KC Conservative Coalition announces endorsements

By on January 28, 2010

The Kane County Conservative Coalition was founded in 2002 to “support men and women for public office who best represent conservative social and fiscal values while conducting themselves ethically and responsibly.” We are filed current with the Illinois State Board of Elections.

Next Tuesday, Feb. 2, voters in Kane County will be making important decisions. Do not be fooled by the rhetoric of candidates. You must research their political, business and personal records to make sure that they have the required credibility and integrity to represent you and your family in Geneva, Springfield and Washington DC.

With that in mind, the Kane County Conservative Coalition endorses Adam Andrzejewski for Illinois Governor, Jim Dodge for Illinois Comptroller, Patrick Hughes for U.S. Senate, Randy Hultgren for Congress 14th District, David Akemann for Kane Resident Judge, David J. Rickert, CPA for Kane County Treasurer, Chris Lauzen for State Senate District 25, Keith Wheeler for State Representative District 50, Melisa Taylor for Kane County Board District 5, T.R. Smith for Kane County Board District 25.

    Reading these kind of letters is sometimes more of a warning for me of who NOT to vote for. When I see an organization that has views in total opposition to mine and they support certain candidates I know these are folks to stay away from. I received a call today about a candidate who is the only one supported by the NRA – delete, delete. People need to make informed choices. Affiliating yourself with the wrong group tells a lot.

    I am a true conservative who has spent many hours, over many days, researching all the candidates to enable me to choose wisely on election day. I am excited to discover that my list is almost exactly the same as this list provided by Jon A Zahm of the Kane County Conservative Coalition. RM is correct, this is definately not a list of candidates that a liberal would choose.

    Voters have a responsibility to do their homework. It’s your right to vote the recommendations of the coalition even if it shows limited perspective. God and guns don’t go together in my book.
