Nov. 8 our chance to send message to elites in office
CAROL BAY of Port Byron had this published in the July 31 Dispatch/Argus. ..... marks paragraph breaks "With every daily newspaper, and every property tax bill, it seems like everything is getting worse. That the "elites" in government have total power over us and there is nothing we can do about it. ..... Recently we found that one judge can undo the work of thousands and prevent the remap vote. What can we do? ..... Donald Trump has established himself as our messenger. If you are dissatisfied with the elites who seem to have total control of our lives and want to gain even more control by ever-increasing regulations, you can send a clear message by casting a vote for Donald Trump. ..... If you are dissatisfied with ever-increasing taxes, Rock Island County voters can send a clear message with a vote of NO on the sales tax referendum. .... If you are dissatisfied with Michael Madigan's super-majority stranglehold in Springfield you can break that stranglehold by electing Tony McCombie and Brandi McGuire. ..... If you are dissatisfied with the Rock Island County nepotism and ever-higher taxes you can break that monopoly by electing Republicans to RICo office. .... November 8 is our chance to send a clear message to the elites in Washington, Springfield, and here in Rock Island County that we are mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore, ..... What can we do? ..... We can use our vote to send a message to these elites by voting for Donald Trump and the entire Republican ticket and voting no on the sales tax referenda."
