How to Vote in the Mar. 18, 2014 IL Republican Primary, Lake County and Wauconda Township, IL

If you want to know who to vote for in the REPUBLICAN Primary in Lake County, IL (and in Wauconda Township Precinct 337) on March 18, 2014, here are my recommended candidates:

1. Sen. Kirk Dillard & Rep. Jil Tracy for GOVERNOR/LT. GOVERNOR, experienced, skilled, tested, prepared, clear track record; strong pro-life, family, & marriage values; pro-business, anti-progressive tax, anti-property tax increase; anti-tax increase to seniors; versus Bill Brady, Dan Rutherford, and Bruce Rauner (pro-abortion, anti-family liberal, friend of Mike Madigan and Rahm Immanuel, given $100,000’s to Democrats).
2. Mrs. Jeri Atleson, for LAKE COUNTY TREASURER, young, fresh, compassionate, CPA, taxpayer advocate for lower property taxes, young mother and wife; versus Dave Stolman (22 years on LC Board).
3. Bob Grogan, CPA, for STATE TREASURER; versus Tom Cross (voted to redefine marriage in IL).
4. State Sen. Jim Oberweis for U. S. SENATE versus Doug Truax.  We need a man of experience who can stand a chance of beating incumbent Democrat Dick Durbin in the fall 2014 General Election.
5. Bob Bednar for STATE REPRESENTATIVE in District 51, pro-life, pro-family, pro-marriage, pro-business, personable, honest, hard-working; versus Ed Sullivan (voted to redefine marriage in IL).

I am hopeful that conservative Republicans will have the “courage of their convictions” to vote in this Primary for those candidates who hold to conservative values, including the Republican platform.  If we give up the moral foundation of our party, we will destine our State and our country to further destructive social and economic policies of liberal Democrats.  If we don’t stand up for what we believe, then all is lost.

March 18, 2014 Republican Primary: Why I support Ms. Jeri Atleson for Lake County, IL Treasurer

Atleson 3, 2014 Primary

Atleson 4, 2014 Primary

Why will I vote for Jeri Atleson in the March 18, 2014 Republican Primary?

(Vote early: March 3-15, 2014)

1.  Jeri Atleson is a “taxpayer advocate” who has the skill, compassion, and clear goal to help Lake County property owners know HOW to reduce their real estate taxes!   She is not just interested in “bringing in the sheaves” of Lake County wealth from property owners whose taxes are too high and are sapping their financial strength.  She is interested in being honest and fair to Lake County residents.  She wants to educate and empower homeowners.

2.  Jeri Atleson is not a “career politician.”   To Jeri, being elected to be the Lake County, IL Treasurer would be “a service not a career (Karen Leoni, home owner, Ella Township).”  (Jeri’s  Republican Primary opponent David Stolman has served on the Lake County Board for 22 years.)

3.  Jeri Atleson is an experienced and qualified Treasurer and Certified Public Accountant (CPA).

4.  Amazingly, Jeri Atleson, her husband, and two children, are willing NOT to take a taxpayer funded pension.  They are trusting God to supply their future needs.

5.  Jeri Atleson will “freeze the budget” in the treasurer’s Office and control spending with wisdom and responsibility.

6.  Finally, Jeri Atleson is a young, compassionate woman with the courage and commitment to run for this Lake County office of Treasurer in an often male-dominated context and sphere of influence.

How I made Phone Calls for Bob Bednar, Candidate for Republican State Representative in the 51st District versus State Rep Ed Sullivan, for the March 18, 2014 IL Primary Election

2.21.2014 Phone Script for Bob Bednar, running against State Rep. Ed Sullivan in the Republican Primary on Mar. 18, 2014 in IL District 51, read to Ela Township residents, Precincts 89 -91

Note: 1:  I am working from a strongly Republican list of voters in Ela Township, including residents of Barrington, Lake Zurich, and Hawthorn Woods, IL.

Note 2:  If I get a “live person”, I greet the person and I ask to speak to the resident by name (“May I speak to __________”), and I then introduce myself (“My name is Mike Bailey”), and explain the reason for my call. I am sensitive to the person’s schedule and am respectful. I sometimes find the person has already voted by absentee ballot. If the person has not already voted, is available and willing to talk, I utilize following script.

Note 3:  If I don’t get a live person, I read the following script into their voice mail box or onto their answering machine. It usually takes me about 1.5 minutes (±15 seconds)  to get through with the entire script, as follows:

Our Phone Script (written by my wife and I and modified by each of us as we make our calls):

Hello, I am a volunteer calling you today to urge you to vote, in the Mar. 18 Primary (early vote on Mar. 3-15), for Bob Bednar for Republican State Representative in the 51st District.  Bob is seeking to unseat veteran incumbent Ed Sullivan, one of the three Republican State Reps who voted for same-sex marriage, bringing about the redefinition of marriage in IL.  [In addition, Ed Sullivan, while currently serving as the 51st District State Representative is also the Freemont Township Assessor, collecting two state tax-payer-funded salaries, pensions and benefits.] 

On the other hand, State Representative Republican Candidate Bob Bednar

  •  is solidly pro-Life, pro-Family; pro-2nd Amendment and Conceal Carry;
  •  Bob Bednar will seek to create a business-friendly environment in IL …(pause)
  •  He will not support any progressive income tax
  •  He will not support tax increases to seniors
  •  He will not support property tax increases
  •  He will bring meaningful pension reform, and pro-education reform

“The only way we will change the way Springfield does business is to change the people who are running it.”

Please support Bob Bednar for State Representative in the 51st District on March 18, or early vote on March 3-15.  Thank you very much.
