ABC 7 News has requested every candidate running in the March 2012 preliminary election to discuss their beliefs regarding certain issues in an online forum. It’s a great opportunity to get to know the other candidates running for senators, state reps, congressman, and commissioners so as to make the best decision when it comes time to vote. I’ve responded to their request and very excited to have the public make their decision, which is their constitutional right.
As it currently stands, I am running for Congressman of the 4th Congressional District as a Democrat here in Illinois. I will be running as a write-in candidate, so make sure that if you’re in the 4th legislative district and you feel I would represent you well to fill in my name, Jorge Zavala.
During the last two weeks, I’ve been getting many calls from residents of the 4th district asking me to do everything possible to stay on the ballot. I’m very happy to hear so much support and kind words and I will definitely run with your continuous help against Luis Gutierrez for Congressman. I will post further development as they come.
I’m a firm believer of keeping the environment clean and free of excess waste. Therefore, I am doing all that is possible to limit flyer distribution or excess campaign material in order to keep the 4th district green. However, if you are interested in receiving some Zavala for Congressman material, we’ll be more than happy to provide some promo gear.
If you feel the desire and fervid interest to actively engage with my campaign, feel free to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Volunteer” or give us a call at 312.212.0796. It’s 2012 and it’s about time the push aside personal interests and actually begin making your tax dollars work for you: the 99%.
