From the Desk of Chairman Ray Wesley
Please join your fellow patriots THIS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 19th & 20th for a GOP Petition Super-Signing Weekend.

On Saturday, we will meet at Glazebrook Park, 1401 Stamper Lane, Godfrey. There are several ways you can participate throughout the day:

  • 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. - 1st Shift - Door-to-door signature collection
  • 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. - 2nd Shift - Door-to-door signature collection
  • 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. - Petition drive-thru opportunity - (sign or pick up petitions, or get them notarized through the on-site drive up)
  • 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. - On-site notary service available

Feel free to take part in one or both shifts, or use the drive thru to sign petitions or pick them up. You can take petitions from the event and walk door-to-door in your community. Take advantage of the opportunity to have your completed petitions notarized.

Please encourage like-minded friends and family members to participate in this petition super event!

For those taking petitions home to circulate, we will have a notary on site from 2-4 p.m. Sunday at the Holiday Inn Express, 1000 Plummer Dr., Edwardsville.

All candidates in the upcoming primary are welcome to participate. Judges Amy Sholar and Chris Threlkeld are among some of the candidates planning to attend.

Read more about how State Democrats targeting these seats could mean some Madison County residents won't have a voice in the upcoming judicial election - or any judicial elections for many years to come. Join the Madison County GOP this weekend and help us fight back!

I'm looking forward to a big turnout this weekend!
