I am writing to encourage intelligent and independent-thinking voters to re-elect Illinois House member from the 88th District, Rep. Keith Sommer.
My wife and I have known Mr. Sommer for a number of years and have high respect for his honesty, character, and judgment. You will not see Keith Sommer hiding from his constituents as some of our congressmen have done; you will not see Rep. Sommer in some elementary classroom with our one-term governor on a phony photo op; you will not see Mr. Sommer abusing taxpayers' trust on travel reimbursement or skipping out on conferences.
Talk to Rep. Sommer's neighbors and colleagues and you will hear high praise for his work ethic and commitment to his community, his district and our state government. Rep. Keith Sommer has earned our trust and should be retained for another term in the General Assembly.
