LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Posted October 16, 2018

 

Dear Editor:

 

The last few decades the 101st Illinois District has been well served by retiring State Rep. Bill Mitchell.  I would like to thank Rep. Mitchell for these years of public service and for the many things he accomplished for the residents of the 101st District not limited to being instrumental in keeping the Exelon Power Plant open in DeWitt County in which so many quality local jobs could have been loss.


To the voters of 101st District, I encourage you to join me in voting for Dan Caulkins as our next Representative.  I’ve been fortunate to get to know Dan and his lovely wife Jo over the course of the last year; I can attest that they are both outstanding and genuine people that I’m proud to call friends.  There are many reasons why Dan Caulkins is the right choice for voters this election. 

 

First of all, Dan Caulkins is in the race for the right reason which is serving his constituents.  That is why Dan is term limiting himself to 6 years, he is not taking a salary, health insurance, or a pension.

 

Dan Caulkins also brings with him many years of experience as a successful business owner.  This is the type of leadership we need in Springfield, someone fighting for lower taxes and less regulation to try and keep business in Illinois.

 

We can’t have more taxes as that will continue to encourage residents and businesses to continue moving to states that have more economic opportunity.


Please join me in electing Dan Caulkins as our next State Representative of 101st District along with supporting all of our Republican candidates at all levels of government as they fight to stop higher taxes and less regulation.


Sincerely,

Dustin A. Peterson
Clinton, IL
