I am running a contest to get a blog entry on the top of my page on the day of the primary election. Send in a photo of a pet with a campaign sign and I will post them all. I will choose the top entry. This entry is from a candidate I expect to finish in the top three of a crowded field. If no candidate gets more than 50% of the vote there will be a runoff in November.
Funny enough Don Facciano's campaign signs have a dog on them.
This morning I went with Don Facciano, his wife, Hazel, and their dog, "Marco" to the grand opening of the new dog park and splash pad in Oak Park. It was a great event and a beautiful new park. The Taxpayer's Watchdog and his dog really enjoyed the festivities as did my dog "Vito" (short for Don Vito) who was photographed there by Star and Acorn reporters. I'm sending you three of my own photos for entries in your contest. The golden is Marco and the Great Dane is Vito. Thanks for doing this; I think it's a cute idea to supplement the rest of the more serious coverage you provide on the candidates.
