Sid Mathias is an independent, thoughtful representative who deserves your vote for re-election.
He has the guts to disagree with his party on issues important to him and his constituents.
There is no question that he advocates for fiscal responsibility and has been fighting for a true balanced State of Illinois budget. He is for quality education in our schools, and is a sponsor of legislation to reduce our taxes. Mathias is opposed to increasing our property taxes by shifting the State's obligation to fund teacher pensions to local school districts.
There is no question that he has earned the respect and praise of surrounding Village Mayors such as Braiman and Hartstein of Buffalo Grove, Byrne of Vernon Hills, Mulder of Arlington Hts., Blomberg of Lincolnshire , Kessler of Mundelein, Weppler of Libertyville, Wysocki of Green Oaks, Rodriguez of Long Grove, and Abruscato of Wheeling ... for his tireless dedication to area residents.
There is no question he has always been an advocate for the extension of Route 53 to promote economic growth and reduce traffic gridlock within our region. There is no question he continues to advocate for increasing METRA service to the entire district.
There is no question he is a person of integrity, intelligence and trustworthiness.
There is no question at all — that I am voting for Sid Mathias and encourage you to do the same.
