My “thank you” to the good people of District 17 of Winnebago County (IL) in one of the local Rockford, IL papers HERE

I want to thank all those who volunteered, donated, helped me in any way, or ultimately decided to vote for me in my run for District 17 of the Winnebago County Board this past election on Nov. 8. I did everything expected of a candidate: going door to door, talking directly to the people, holding fundraisers and getting active in researching and taking on many local issues rarely given voice.
Despite the setback, I absolutely believe my issues are still worth mentioning and fighting for until they become reality. For example, I’m 100-percent convinced that our county animal services must be made into a no-kill shelter sooner rather than never. I further believe the Companion Animal & Consumer Protection Ordinance is a must if we are to put on notice bad breeders and help end the practice of puppy mills. If you are an animal owner and lover, you owe it to your furry family member to at least research these two very important issues.
Public banking is another issue that would be of considerable tax saving and financial value for our county. Google “North Dakota state bank” and read for yourself what they have done for themselves, starting over 100 years ago. Not only did they remove Wall Street from the equation, but they are the only state in the union to have run in the black every single year since it chartered its state bank.
So again, thank you for everything. It was a great run. I enjoyed doing my part in trying to further the discussion on these issues, and hope this letter furthers it even more.
