Did you watch the debate Monday night? Next Tuesday brings the vice presidential debate featuring Mike Pence v. Hillary's choice.

From 5 to 7 p.m., a reception for Steven Kozicki for Judge will be hosted by the law office of Judge, James, Hoban & Fisher at 422 N. Northwest Hwy., Park Ridge. Same night from 6 to 8 p.m., LaTasca Tapas Restaurant at 25 W. Davis, Arlington Heights, will be the site of a reception for State Rep. David Harris. Mark your calendar now.

WE NEED ELECTION JUDGES!

September 20, 2016

I come to you with an appeal to fill a need in our township.

Our election judge coordinator, Frank Palisi, came to me today with a deep concern. To staff the polling places in Wheeling Township for this likely-to-be-crowded election day, we need nearly 45 more Republicans to step forward to serve as trained, paid election judges. 

It's a critical post for election day, Nov. 8. Our election judges are there to administer the election process, to facilitate our right to vote and to guarantee an honest election in our township. 

Can you serve in the polls on election day?

It does require some training - just one session - and a commitment to the entire long day. But it also comes with compensation - $190 for every trained election judge or $340 for a trained equipment manager in each precinct. 

The need is real and urgent. Please think about whether you can take election day out of your usual schedule and serve for the good of the community and of the Republican Party. Then mark it on your calendar and go to the County Clerk's website to apply; click the appropriate button at the bottom of the page at:http://www.cookcountyclerk.com/elections/electionjudges/Pages/default.aspx.

If you wouldn't mind, would you also please leave a message for Frank Palisi at our office to let him know you've signed up. (847/632-1774)

Thanks so much!


Faithfully,

Ruth O'Connell
