Next Candidate to ‘Vote Off the Island’ in District 13‏: Frank Metzger

-By Jon Zahm

Retired ironworker, and current tree cutting business owner, Frank Metzger should be commended and recognized for his service in the Navy during Vietnam. He seems like a patriotic and sincere man. However, earning just 18% of the vote in the 2012 primary for the 13th does not demonstrate voter appeal. In a September 17,.2011 article in the Edwardsville Intelligencer, Metzger self-described as “socially liberal.” The Republican Party is a pro-life, socially conservative party. Metzger does not subscribe to these viewpoints and he failed to fill out the Illinois Family Institute’s survey on 10 key issues. I suggest he be eliminated from consideration for the appointment next. Now there are six. Check back tomorrow for the next person to be cut.
