* It’s called “A Different Kind of Republican”…
I’m Tom Cross.
I’m running for State Treasurer to clean up the mess in Springfield …
… and I’ve never been afraid to break from my party to get results.
I support stem cell research …
… and I cast the deciding vote for marriage equality.
As Treasurer, I’ll fight government waste and fraud
Holding the Springfield Politicians accountable
so we can invest in what really matters … our schools.
VO: Tom Cross. Independent leadership for Illinois.
…Adding… Frerichs campaign response…
Tom Cross is “different”, and not in a good way.
One of the ultimate Springfield insiders, Tom Cross was on Rod Blagojevich’s clout list. According to a Sun-Times special report by Dave McKinney, Cross recommended 46 people to the “Blagojevich Jobs Machine.”
Tom Cross voted against bipartisan legislation backed by Mark Kirk and Barack Obama to block a toxic sludge treatment plant from being built on Lake Michigan. Cross was one of only 20 House lawmakers to oppose clean drinking water for millions.
Mike Frerichs worked with Democrats and Republicans to end the troubled legislative scholarship program and to expand job-creating enterprise zones. Mike Frerichs will put an end to the “politics as usual” that have plagued the Treasurer’s office in recent years, while Tom Cross continues to say “good job.”
