I have more time to receive a pardon from Gov. Quinn. I won't be sworn in until May 5.
I have been known in the past to be able to pull a rabbit out of a hat and this will be another one of those times.
Quinn is not my only option and that law just may not be all that it is cracked up to be. The states attorney should know this and the news media here in Peoria are too lazy or inept to do their due diligence. I look forward to their attempts to challenge me once I'm elected and I will proudly serve as Mayor of Peoria.
I want to thank you for your endorsement and understand that this campaign is not about me at all. You and others who vote for me as mayor, are saying to the status quo, NO MORE!
We will no longer be unrepresented or unheard. Our concerns will no longer go unanswered. We will hold our government officials responsible from now on.
Can you beleive that they are actually considering taxing us again to not only build a privately owned hotel but also a privately owned museum, when we have had deteriorating roads, bridges, sidewalks and a sewer system for years. They are also thinking of adding more taxpayer dollars from the stimulus bill to cover the gap that private funding may be lacking.
This should anger every taxpayer in this area. They won't seek stimulus money to pay for an antiquated sewer system that we're are mandated to fix but they will fight tooth and nail to fund their friends project.
A vote for Ardis will mean a vote to pay higher taxes for:
4. Combined Sewer Overflow System
5. Budget Deficit
Four out those five on the list are direct results of council's decisions. The mayor can claim experience all he wants but if your experience has been making either bad or the wrong decisions for the citizens, then it's time to chose someone with good judgement and concern for the people, all the people.
Don't forget that District 150 has raised it's tax levy on the people and Gov. Quinn will raise the state income tax by 50%.
How much longer will we accept being taxed unnecessarily?
Vote Parker for Mayor.

Today is Wednesday, March 4, 2009.
Tom Bride, executive director of the Peoria Election Commission, said the beginning of absentee, in-person voting at his office could begin as soon as today, Wednesday, March 4, 2009. Bride also said that once any type of voting begins this week, withdrawal requests won't be accepted (from pjstar).
What now Mr. State's Attorney?
