In case you haven’t figured it out, nothing on this card says Preston is a Republican.
The Illinois GOP picked Scott Preston because he is just like Dan Brady. The ILGOP wants to permanently be in the minority because they make a lot of money and get blamed for nothing. The ILGOP is so bad they are a super MINORITY. They don’t need to show up in Springfield because they have ZERO power.
Can you name ONE piece of legislation or ANY impact Dan Brady had during all his years in Springfield? I can name one he voted against – School Vouchers for Chicago kids that would have freed 30,000 kids from the awful public schools. You might remember this from 2010: https://newsblogs.chicagotribune.com/clout_st/2010/05/chicago-school-vouchers-shot-down-by-illinois-house.html
Want proof Scott Preston is the pick of the ILGOP? That one is easy. Click here: https://www.illinoissunshine.org/committees/25061/
See who Preston’s Treasurer is:
Who is Dave Krahn?
David Krahn is Treasurer for a long list of GOP candidates. See “Related Committees” at the link above.
The ILGOP doesn’t want you to choose who represents you – they want to tell you who to vote for. They don’t want people who are going to fight for you in Springfield. Dan Brady never did and he was in GOP leadership. Preston is his chosen replacement who rarely fought for you as a Normal Trustee. Just the type the ILGOP likes.
You have a better choice: Jim Fisher. The ILGOP doesn’t want him – that’s a good thing.
