Illinois needs reforms – not a bailout

Allen Skillicorn DebateIllinois Senate President Don Harmon recently sent a letter asking the federal government for a $41 billion bailout for Illinois which includes a $10 billion request to address Illinois’ pension crisis.

Harmon has been roundly ridiculed for his ridiculous request and rightfully so. Coronavirus had nothing to do with Illinois’ pension problems. Illinois’s $138 billion pension hole did not happen during the month-long coronavirus shutdown of our economy. The pension crisis in Illinois has been decades in the making.

McHenry Times: On abortion, GOP State Rep candidate Schofield refuses to take a position

I am unequivocally pro-life, and I'll never run from it.  I’m not ashamed of it because, frankly, life matters.  My primary opponent refuses to take a position in a video published by the McHenry Times. 

Watch the video - Schofield clearly says her answer depends on what group of people she is talking with at the time. If she’s changing the answer based on the crowd, she is talking out of both sides of her mouth.

If you agree that we need a strong advocate for life representing the 6th District, I need you to do two things:

  1. Vote for me at an Early Voting location AND
  2. Donate $25, $100 or $250 to help me raise the $4,000 in need to raise before the Primary Election

On abortion, GOP State Rep candidate Schofield refuses to take a position - McHenry Times 3/12/20

"A Republican candidate for a seat in the Illinois House of Representatives declined to reveal her position on abortion during a forum last week.

Carolyn Schofield, who is running against incumbent state Rep. Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) in the March 17 GOP primary for the state District 66 seat, refused to answer when she was asked at a Dundee Township Republican Party meeting if she considered herself pro-life.

“I don’t consider myself either, because I am more policy-driven,” Schofield said at the Feb. 5 event.

Carolyn Schofield Endorsed by Trump Hater!


#SILENTSCHOFIELD ENDORSED BY HATER SCHMITT

Normally politicians list off their allies, mentors, and other people with similar political philosophies as endorsements during campaign season. That’s all well and good, but my Republican Primary opponent has accepted an endorsement from a man who calls himself a “very partisan” Democrat, compares Republicans to Nazis, harbors religious bigotry against Christians, and is a Trump hater.

In a Democrat Primary it would not be totally uncommon to boast of an endorsement from someone who suffers from “Trump Derangement Syndrome”, but why would a so-called Republican candidate accept this endorsement?

Please let me introduce you to Algonquin Village President John Schmitt. His favorite politicians are Barack Obama, J.B. Pritzker, Sean Casten, and Carolyn Schofield.
