Tuck Marshall Signs Stolen at Western & RT 30 Walgreens

Today, we had the privilege of watching it in action. It's an election cycle privilege to have a candidate important enough to warrant their signs being stolen.

It's an election cycle privilege to have a candidate important enough to warrant their signs being stolen. Each year, thousands of signs are put out, and many meet unfortunate accidents that ends in their destruction. In many cases, the candidate's opponent's signs seem to appear out of nowhere to replace the fallen advertisements.

Today, we had the privilege of watching it in action. It was very exciting witnessing the process of a sign being stolen and then replaced with another. At 12:38PM, near the Walgreens on Western & Route 30, some very helpful Toi Hutchinson supporters, who turned out to be Chicago Heights workers, took it upon themselves to replace our Tuck Marshall signs with Toi Hutchinson ones. We are confident there is no way our opponent's campaign would stoop so low as to steal our signs and replace them in broad daylight on election day, and that this was merely the act of a misguided supporter.

You can do your part today to help offset this attempt at gaining votes and hit the polls. Bring friends and family with and have them support Tuck Marshall, a candidate who will say NO to the costly and unnecessary Peotone Airport, NO to the unfunded Illiania Highway, and NO to the 67% increase on your state income tax bill that has already gone into effect, and will remain permanent under Toi Hutchinson's administration.

Smart voters stand behind those with integrity both on the campaign trail and in life. These misguided "volunteers" should be reprimanded by community officials and Toi Hutchinson for the misdeeds in this article and the larger issue at hand, campaign integrity. Our candidates and elected officials need to address the difficult issues our state is facing, not unconsciously advocating for "stealing" in our state Capitol or on our streets. This is disgusting representation of our voting and campaign strategies!
