Voting power

To the Editor:

Scott Walker, governor of Wisconsin, ran for office with the premise that Wisconsin was in financial trouble and he wanted to turn it around. He won the office and, in a relatively short amount of time, he did turn the state around.

Now in Illinois, we have an election for governor coming up and we have four candidates running on the Republican ticket. One and only one of these candidates is saying that he wants to do in Illinois what Walker did in Wisconsin. The other three are not saying what their platform is but instead are going after the other candidate.

To me it doesn’t sound like they have any platform; all they want to do is crucify the one who has a vision of what he would like for the state of Illinois and for the people of Illinois. The other three are career politicians who have lived off the backs of the taxpayers of Illinois their entire adult lives.

To me, we need someone who is strong and a good leader – someone besides Mike Madigan. But we also have the mainstream media jumping all over the one. What are they afraid of? Are the unions that fearful? Why?

The one must be doing something right that so many are so fearful.

One other thing ... in Sun City we are now over 12,000 voters. Let’s use our voting power and let’s vote against the park district referendum.
