Contract is clear

To the Editor:

We all know that Illinois needs a dose of fiscal reality and policies that will bring back jobs to our communities. In Illinois’ 52nd House District, we have responsible businessman David McSweeney versus longtime activist Dee Beaubien. I sincerely believe McSweeney is the right person to help turn around our communities.

McSweeney understands that to build confidence with job creators, the state needs to pay its bills on time by cutting waste and fraud. He understands that our focus needs to be on improving bond ratings, not creating division between constituents.

The contrast is clear between McSweeney and Beaubien.

McSweeney has focused his campaign around sound fiscal policies, and Beaubien has used over $200,000 in special interest money to attack him on social issues.

It’s clear that Beaubien and her ally, Speaker Michael Madigan, are not concerned about the issues that really affect residents in McHenry, Lake and Kane counties.
