Breaking news: Candidate in the 48th House district
MARIAN TOMLINSON TO RUN AGAINST PETER BREEN IN STATE REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT 48
The nominating committee elected at the County Convention has chosen Marian to run in the State Representative District 48 against Tea Party Conservative Peter Breen. Marian will be seeking 500-1500 signatures on petitions before the end of May to get on the ballot, and will then seek your support in the election November 4. This district, currently represented by Sandra Pihos, covers about half of Milton Township, and half of York Township, with a few precincts in Bloomingdale and Lisle. If you live in District 48, or if you would like to help gather signatures, please contact Marian (630-858-4587) or Walt (630-442-3045) to offer your help. Petitions will be available at the picnic or can be sent to you online, but can only be signed by voters who chose a Democratic ballot the last time they voted in a primaryOR WHO HAVE NEVER VOTED IN ANY ILLINOIS PRIMARY.
Marian wants to represent your ideas in the General Assembly, not those of a radical and irresponsible party faction.
