My family has received a robocall from Emanuel “Chris” Welch saying that Chris Harris, the democrat who is running against Welch for state representative, is stuffing people’s mailboxes with a newspaper containing lies about Mr. Welch.
So far, my family has received 39 mailers stuffed in our mailbox from Emanuel Welch. We have only received one mailing from Harris. I think it is plainly evident that Welch is the one stuffing people’s mailboxes!
Does Mr. Welch think people cannot count?
Some of the mailers we have received from Welch slam Harris with accusations of Harris looking out for his friends.
I believe it is evident that Welch is making false accusations against Harris of exactly what Welch has been doing for years in hiring his friends and relatives, such as a $56,000 janitorial job for his brother Billy Welch and a $90,000 night foreman job for the best man at Welch’s wedding, according to a March 8, 2012 Chicago Sun-Times report.
I believe Emanuel Welch is totally insulting voters if he thinks we cannot count and do not know of his loading Proviso High School District 209 payroll with his friends and relatives, just like he loads our mailboxes!
I recently put out two lawn signs for Harris that were stolen and immediately replaced by lawn signs for Emanuel “Chris” Welch. This is like a thief who drops his ID at the scene of his crime!
I believe it is time we enacted “term limits” by ending Emanuel “Chris” Welch’s term in office and electing Chris Harris, an honest man who does not bombard taxpayers with lies, but tells it like it is. VFP
