In 35th District race, Hebein says a vote for Hurley means higher taxes
Herbert Hebein, a retired Chicago police officer and GOP state House candidate in District 35, said a vote for his opponent, state Rep. Frances Ann Hurley (D-Mt. Greenwood), would continue the same broken system.
“The taxes in the state will increase exponentially and the residents of Illinois will be on the hook for more of Madigan’s waste and corruption,” Hebein told South Cook News in a recent interview.
Hebein said Hurley had backed House Speaker Michael Madigan (D-Chicago) on several key initiatives that have contributed to the state’s high tax burden and attempts at gun control.
“She is a rubber stamp for Madigan,” the GOP Hebein said. “She has voted for every tax hike, votes for more government spending, and is trying to take away our Second Amendment rights,” Hebein said. “She votes against everything that hurts the taxpayer.”
On his campaign website, Hebein outlined his platform, which includes lowering taxes, cutting spending, emphasizing neighborhood safety and supporting Second Amendment rights.
His endorsements include the United Southland Republican Women, the Illinois Federation for Right to Life, and Illinois talk show host Joe Walsh.
Hebein said the results of the Nov. 6 election will have a broad impact on the state.
“It is so important we get out and vote,” he said. “Madigan must not redistrict the state. If it happens, Illinois will be in a position to never rebuild.”
Hebein and Hurley will compete on the ballot Tuesday to represent District 35, covering part of Chicago and the communities of Alsip, Chicago Ridge, Merrionette Park, Oak Lawn, Orland Hills, Orland Park, Palos Heights, Palos Park, Tinley Park and Worth.
