From the campaign to elect David McSweeney State Rep., 52nd District…
Barrington Township: David McSweeney, candidate for State Representative in the 52nd District, is announcing an event to be headlined by former Republican Presidential nominee and Senator from Arizona John McCain. Senator McCain will be the featured guest at an event to be held in early 2012. Details of the event are pending and will be released when they become available.
“I am proud to have Senator McCain headline my event for my campaign for Republican nominee for State Representative in the 52nd District. Senator McCain is a true American hero having served in the United States Navy, the US House of Representatives and the US Senate. Senator McCain and I share the belief that government at all levels needs to balance their budgets” said McSweeney.
“Illinois’ budget mess has become a national story mirroring the failed policies of the Federal government. Tax increases, debt and deficits have resulted in a 9.1% national jobless rate and Illinois now stands at 10% unemployed. Since the huge tax increases were levied in Illinois our unemployment rate has gone up. We need to cut taxes and roll back regulations on business so that we can grow our businesses and increase job opportunities. Senator McCain has been a proponent of reining in spending nationally and I look forward to engaging in that battle right here in Illinois”, said McSweeney.
John McCain served as a naval aviator in Vietnam. His plane was shot down in 1967 and he was held captive until 1973. He was elected to the US House in 1982 and then the US Senate in 1986. In 2008 he was the Republican nominee for President. He continues to serve in the Senate and is a leading advocate of conservative principles.
