From: So-Called "Austin Mayor"
Subject: Please call Bill Thomasson of Oak Park, ASAP.
From your Elk Grove Times:
Bill Thomasson, an Oak Park resident, spent part of two years walking precincts and canvassing on behalf of the Cegelis campaign. He and others haven't heard from Duckworth yet and they're waiting.And Billy, you really oughtta give Rob Bisceglie and Joe Vosicky a call too.
"I think her campaign knows that they need to reach out. I am kind of at the point where I'm going to sit back and see what they are going to do before I decide what I am going to do," Thomasson said. ***
Thomasson said the fastest way to get people like him on board with Duckworth would be to announce a combined campaign with all the Democratic candidates in the 6th District.
"Under that type of an arrangement, I would have no problem passing out Tammy Duckworth literature along with literature from local candidates, working for [Duckworth]," he said.
It would show long-suffering local Democrats that Duckworth is committed to a district long considered too conservative to be bothered with by Dem candidates, Thomasson said.
"What Tammy Duckworth needs to demonstrate to us is that she has what it takes to win in the 6th District which is dominated by Republicans," he said.
