Why you should support this campaign

30 year incumbent, Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar, has gotten rich off of his hardworking taxpayers. Criticized by the Chicago Tribune for living a "lavish lifestyle" funded by taking money from donors who then get over $300 million in city contracts, Mayor Claar has used his campaign funds to jet off to exotic locales and drive around town in a Jaguar.

As if that wasn't bad enough, in 2016, Mayor Claar hosted then candidate Donald Trump for a fundraiser to support his hate driven campaign for President, despite Bolingbrook voting against Trump by 67% in that fall's general election.

Show that Bolingbrook rejects pay-to-play politics and Donald Trump by voting down Roger Claar.

Jackie is under attack

We're under attack from Donald Trump and his millionaire supporters.

Just yesterday, they put down their first piece of mail attacking Jackie for supporting a progressive income tax in Illinois. After the destruction Bruce Rauner has wrought, she agreed with Democrats across Illinois that we should cut taxes for 99% of filers and raise taxes on 1% of them.


And now they're attacking her for it.

Please help now with whatever you can.

Quick campaign update

In the past week, we've been fortunate to have Senator Dick Durbin and Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL-11) send out emails on Jackie's behalf which helped bring in over 150 new supporters.

Also, Senator Tammy Duckworth recently announced her support and we're getting a great response on the doors as more and more volunteers show up on the weekends to spread the word voter to voter.

With the direct mail program starting on both sides, your financial support is essential in getting the word out about Jackie's lifelong commitment to Bolingbrook. Thank you!

    “I endorse Jackie because she has the courage to speak up and help try to make a difference. Aside from our local leadership who supported current national leadership to visit our town, a town that is what it is today because of its diversity, shows true meaning that the diversity is not a big deal. There are so many GOP candidates who stood up against some of the sentiments coming from the National level, but our local leadership said nothing against it. Taxes are going up, water is going up, and the outstanding debt still continues to rise. The value of debt is overly concerning and risk to tax us out of town.”
