Wow! A POLITICIAN wrote that?? Did THAT?! GETS THAT?!?!

Are you sure you didn't make this guy up???

Seriously though, if he doesn't get re-elected, the constituents are fools!

I want to march with him in Plainfield, and I don't even know where the hell that IS!!

His own muted horn-blowing actually does him no justice, Kristen. I've moved with him in Will County. He doesn't buy a cup of coffee without asking the proprietor her name.

"Oh, what kind of name is that?"

"Oh, Slovenian! I'm good pals with ...."

And on, until he asks her where she lives, asks her if she's had any problems or questions about her taxes. Well, if she ever does here's his card, don't hesitate to call ...

He personally deals with calls from anyone, sane or crazy, who wants to bitch about their property taxes.

"This is Pat McGuire, how can I help you?" If he doesn't immediately shock them into silence, he winds up soothing them.

Honestly, you spend a few hours with him, you casually extrapolate his behavior across government--and corporations--and you begin to see an infinitely more agreeable civilization.

McGuire for Treasurer, hell: McGuire for EVERYTHING.

Having been lucky enough to have spent a little time with him, I would vote for McGuire for everything, too. He's a remarkable man, and everything a politician should be. Everything a human being should be, actually.

Steve C.

And what about women lawyers--is it also risky to wear the wedge to a law firm interview? No one will say that the wedge is a career-killer, like flip-flops, Birkenstocks, or Crocs. But some do think they are a bit clunky, if not funky.
