Vote for Galhotra

Well you didnít hear it from the Governor today, because he doesnít want you to know that heís going to sign pension stealing legislation for the City of Chicago pension systems and Cook County as well if those bills are put before him for his signature. I have been thinking about this for weeks and Senator Cullertonís appearance on Chicago Tonight earlier this week confirmed it. Thatís why I took out this ad on the day before Quinnís SOTS address:

An open letter to participants in the Chicago Police, Chicago Firefighters, Chicago Municipal Employees, Cook County Employees, Chicago Public School Teacher and Judicial Retirement Systems

Your pension and retirement security is under attack. Our state government has sent us a clear message: You and I are next. You canít stop this alone, but we will, together.

My name is Bob Galhotra. I have been an attorney in the Cook County Public Defenderís office and a union member for over 20 years. I have also been the president of the largest union of attorneys in Illinois for over a decade. As a lawyer I fight for justice. And now, because of the pension injustice recently passed in the Illinois State Senate, I am calling for direct and immediate action against Senator Harmon in the upcoming primary election.

Illinois Senate Bill 1 (SB1), the legislation that stole the state employeeís money, passed in the Illinois State Senate with the minimum number of 30 votes. Senator Harmonís vote alone stole the pensions of hard working families.

Donít sacrifice your retirement security by failing to act.

We can protect whatís been promised to us by changing one vote in the Illinois Senate. This is a main reason I decided to run for the Illinois State Senate.

You and your union leaders should know that the race I am in is the only contested Illinois Democratic Senate seat in the upcoming primary. Take action today and tell our Democratic Party leaders that there are consequences for stealing our pensions. This is the only chance to change one vote.

When elected, I will protect your retirement security.

Today, I am asking you to support me in defending what the law has promised to you.
