John Bambenek: The Status Quo is Unacceptable‏

From the John Bambenek for State Senate (52nd District)…

It’s been a little over a month on the campaign trail and I’ve been meeting lots of great people in Champaign and Vermilion counties. Everywhere I go, people are concerned about the state’s financial mess and looking for a Republican who will fight for our conservative values in Springfield. A few recent news items shows that the status quo is unacceptable.

  • Governor Quinn recently vetoed a health insurance bill that would have required him to provide fair health insurance options for downstate state employees.
  • Governor Quinn unilaterally ended contracts with Catholic Charities because they referred gay couples looking to adopt to other agencies, even though that arrangement has been in place for years.
  • More businesses have announced they are leaving or are considering doing so, including CME, which you may know as the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. It’s a said day when the Chicago Merc is thinking about moving its operations out of Chicago.

And the list goes on. Now is the time for bold and committed conservative leadership who will take on the status quo that is driving jobs from our state. From my perspective, I want a state where my children will find the same (or better) opportunities than I have had and today, it looks like that might not be the case. I will fight for our families in Springfield and fight to eliminate the crippling tax burden on our families and small businesses.

But I can’t do that alone. To win this race against a Chicago-funded Democrat, I need volunteers and donors to help me win this race. If you are able, please donate to my campaign at JohnFor52 or sign up to volunteer for the campaign at Together we can bring a new day to Illinois!

P.S. Even early on, the campaign has its expenses. Your donation of $100, $50, or even $25 helps us get yard signs, pay for mailings and take care of other routine expenses to help us bring our conservative values to Springfield. You can donate here.
