Michels for state senate

Success - Article sent! close

I have had the opportunity of serving on the Sugar Grove village board with Sean Michels for more than 10 years. Sean has been an effective leader of this community and moved Sugar Grove forward. Sean is willing to invest the time that is necessary to get the job done.

There have been times when we have not seen eye to eye on an issue, but Sean is always willing to listen and work with others to get the job done. Sean values team work and consensus building. The ability to work with others to accomplish the goals of this district is key to bringing the necessary tax dollars back to our communities.

Mr. Lauzen likes to stress that he is a principled man and not willing to compromise. He has alienated many in his own party. By doing so, our district has suffered. I say that to be an effective legislator for this district, it may be necessary to compromise one's own personal principles to do what is best for the district as a whole.

Sean also knows that to move Illinois forward, we must cut spending and focus on making Illinois a more business-friendly state, thus increasing jobs and lowering unemployment. Please cast your vote for Sean Michels.
