The June 28th, 2022, Primary Election is quickly approaching, in fact with the advent of mail-in & early voting, the Primary Election “Season” has already begun. Now is the time to elect local, state & federal candidates to compete in November 2022’s General Election. You may notice several other changes, as this is also the first election to take place under the newly gerrymandered County, State and Federal Maps.
Your vote is very important, especially at the local level. Elections have consequences. One party government has denied everyday people in Illinois a seat at the table. From the County Board to the State Supreme Court, Democrats have a majority. Illinois is not represented, it is ruled. Who will defeat Democrats and their rising gas prices, rising crime, rampant inflation, additional taxes, endless executive orders, business, and school closures that impact every aspect of our family & work lives? June 28th is your chance to choose which candidate you feel has the best chance to end one-party rule by Democrats by winning Republican seats at every level in November’s general election. The path to turning our County, our State and our Country around leads right through our community. High voter turnout is the key. Please use your voice by taking the time to vote.
Links to find information on early voting, polling locations and to view your sample ballot can be found below.
U.S. Senate: Seven candidates are running for a chance to defeat Democrat incumbent Tammy Duckworth for United States Senator. You can research them all by visiting their websites using the hyperlinks below.
Illinois Governor: Six candidates are running in this hotly contested Primary. They are all to be commended for their willingness to step up & make the effort & personal sacrifice that comes with running a Gubernatorial campaign. Illinois needs a good Governor. Please do your own research on these candidates. (Links to their websites below.)
Attorney General: There are three candidates for Attorney General. David Shestokas works very closely with the Illinois Election Integrity Project and is a constitutional lawyer. Thomas DeVore has worked on the lawsuits advocating for parents and students on multiple fronts. Steve Kim has the name recognition and resources to run a statewide campaign against Kwame Raoul.
Secretary of State: Two outstanding candidates represent an excellent chance to win the Secretary of State’s Office in November. Dan Brady has served in the 88th District of Illinois’ House of Representatives since 2001. John C. Milhiser is a former state and federal prosecutor and US Attorney for the Central District of Illinois.
We endorse the following candidates for local office:
Illinois State Treasurer: Tom Demmer has been fighting for Illinois taxpayers as a state representative since 2013.
Illinois State Comptroller: Shannon Teresi is qualified for the office and has what it takes to go up against the incumbent.
County Clerk: Gretchen Fritz has been an outstanding County Board Member and is ready to fight for taxpayers as Clerk.
County Sheriff: Dr. Jim Reilly is a constitutionalist with many years of law enforcement experience.
County Treasurer: Raj “Pi” Pilai is a fiscal conservative.
County Supt. of Schools: Elizabeth Camparelli-Ruff is a conservative, who will fight to protect children against CRT, sex education and masks while fighting to uphold the wishes of parents.
Will County Board, District 2 (choose 2): Judy Ogalla and Frankie Pretzel both have experience and a proven records of being tireless advocates for us. In her next term, Judy would become the minority leader, and we have every confidence in her ability to do a stellar job.
Will County Board, District 3 (choose 2): Daniel Butler has been a Frankfort Precinct Committeeman for eight years. George Macias is a conservative businessman. It is important to support Dan and George through the November election to keep their newly drawn district represented by a Republican.
Will County Board, District 4 (choose 2): Steve Balich is an incumbent Board Member with a proven record.
Will County Board, District 5 (choose 2): Annette Parker is an experienced Will County Board Member. Phil Juarez is the Township Collector. Electing Phil represents another opportunity to get a Republican representative on the Board. We can keep a seat and pick up a seat with Phil.
1st U.S. Congressional District: There are four candidates competing for a chance to run for the open seat previously held by Bobby Rush.
State Senator 19th Legislative District: Patrick Sheehan
State Senator 40th Legislative District: Philip Nagel is a veteran and a conservative who advocates for police against crime and for children against CRT & CSE.
House District 37- State Representative: Tim Ozinga is an incumbent and conservative.
The importance of electing conservative Judges: Gerrymandering of districts has led to Democrats packing the courts by creating subcircuits within circuit courts making it difficult to elect Conservative Judges. (Judge Noverini, running for IL Supreme Court)
For Judge of The Circuit Court 12th Judicial Circuit: Both David Connelly Hurst & Bob Bodach are equally qualified to become a judge. Donald DeWilkins is currently a judge. Considering how important it is to have good, constitutional judges, it would be strategic to elect a new judge.
For Judge of The Circuit Court 12th Judicial Circuit 5th Subcircuit: Derek Ewanic is already a good Associate Judge. The election of Jeffrey Tuminello, who has been the Will County Prosecutor for 17 years, would add an additional Conservative judge to the bench.
Please support these excellent judges in the Primary and on November 8, 2022.
Supreme Court: Michael J. Burke
Appellate Court, 3rd Judicial Dist.: Liam Christopher Brennan
12th Judicial Circuit Court: Arkadiusz “Art” Smigielski
