CAMPAIGN WEEKLY RECAP 9/14 – 9/18

Next week is the first day of fall and while the temperatures are cooling down, our campaign to Fire Kim Foxx is heating up. Pat’s mission to bring justice and integrity to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office continued on the right track this week. The week started with an amazing fundraising event at the Wrigley View Rooftops and yesterday Pat and Kim Foxx had a spirited debate sponsored by the Daily Herald.

In the debate, Kim Foxx had the audacity to say some blatantly false statements including: 

  • Her office is a national model for transparency.
  • She has restored integrity to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office.
  • Violent crime is down.
  • She has fixed a broken system.

Watch the debate below.

Clearly, Kim Foxx will say anything, lie about anything and do anything to maintain political power. Pat isn’t running for political power; he is running to fix all of Kim Foxx’s failures. With Pat O’Brien as Cook County State’s Attorney, that office will no longer protect criminals at the expense of the law-abiding citizens and victims of crime in Cook County. It’s time we have a State’s Attorney who is committed to the safety of our neighborhoods and families.

Please see the below links to the latest news articles about the campaign.

We look forward to seeing you along the campaign trial as we head into our campaign’s most important phase, getting out the vote!
