Vote For Jude!


Recommended Posts

The Winnebago County Forest Preserve District will soon be governed by a brand new Board of Commissioners. Up 'til now, the District has been governed by a committee of the County Board. In an attempt to remove politics from the picture, the state has agreed to recognize a newly elected seven member board. Thirty-five people have thrown their hats in the ring, and I am one of them.


I think you guys know how much I love the Kish (which happens to meander through a bunch of our parks) and other moving water, so I won't bore you with a campaign "schpiel". There is a list of candidates and our responses to some specific questions here: http://www.wcfpd.org/candidates/ I really need your help to spread the word that an avid fisherman and paddler is on the ballot. If you visit other fishing or paddling or conservation sites, please give me a plug.


If any of you Winnebago County guys live near a busy street and wouldn't mind a sign, PM me your address and I'll drop one by. Thanks in advance....Jude
