Grassroots Friday - Issue #14

Welcome to February.
I hope everyone is staying safe from all of this snow.
Last month was huge for this volunteer team. We knocked almost 10,000 doors and trained over 100 people on petitioning best practices and how to use the Advantage mobile app.
It’s crunch time for our candidates. Filing is officially over on March 14th, but to have things ready to go, signatures really need to be in by the start of next month.
If you haven’t signed a petition for all of the good conservative candidates in your district - reach out to them (or to me).
Local organizations heard your feedback and recruited a lot more candidates than we had in 2020. You probably have someone running in your district. I was shocked and pleasantly surprised to find out that I did.
Every Saturday from here on out is a Super Saturday and the Statewide Day of Action will be making a return in February.
Y'all are doing awesome. Let’s keep it going. 🚪📋

Response to Pritzker's Budget Address
Illinois Policy
Illinois hasn't balanced a budget since 2001.

@GovPritzker's new budget – contrary to his rhetoric – commits to continuing that trend.

Gas tax relief? When @GovPritzker took office in 2019, total gas taxes were about 50 cents/gallon and #Illinois ranked 21st nationally.

Today, taxes are 78 cents and the state ranks 2nd-highest in the country.

We had a great time in Glen Carbon this morning getting signatures for Representative Elik’s re-election! Folks here are thrilled to be moved into her district. Onward to November! https://t.co/AHm6YNfcvp

It's a beautiful morning in West Dundee!

Great work crew 📋🚪👊 https://t.co/WS5d4JwiOQ
For me, the budget address was incredibly motivating. I want to beat the governor and elect someone who will represent our values.
I want a legislature that supports that conservative governor.
Our candidates need us.
Let’s get some sigs!
