* From SEIU Healthcare Illinois & Indiana’s Facebook page

Are you fed up with Rep. Ken Dunkin’s alliance with Gov. Rauner that’s torpedoed key legislation for Illinois working families, most recently SB 570 to reverse Bruce Rauner’s extreme child care cuts?

Meet Juliana Stratton, who is challenging Dunkin to represent the 5th district! Stratton is a true force for change – who has pledged to stand up to Bruce Rauner’s extreme agenda – not enable it.

We helped circulate petitions for Juliana over the weekend, and if you’d like to help too, please contact our Member Resource Center at 866-933-SEIU.

* The accompanying photo…

Stratton appears to be holding the same pledge card that Rep. Dunkin signed a while back.

    If you look closely at the pledge card it says “no take-backsies.”

    This pledge IS worth the paper it’s written on.

  9. - Anon. - Monday, Nov 23, 15 @ 12:36 pm:

    Maybe it IS Dunkin’s pledge — “Your honor, exhibit A in the case of people of the State of Illinois vs. Ken Dunkin.”

    Are you fed up with Rep. Ken Dunkin’s alliance with Gov. Rauner? Ken Dunkin torpedoed key legislation for Illinois working families. Even SB 570 that would have reversed Rauner’s senseless cuts to child care.

    Meet Juliana Stratton, who is running to represent the 5th district! Stratton is a true force for change. Stratton will to stand up to Bruce Rauner’s extreme agenda. Juliana Stratton will stand up for working the working families that Ken Dunkin sold out.

    (That may not be great, but yeesh, what terrible language)

  20. - James Chapple - Monday, Nov 23, 15 @ 3:01 pm:

    I did my homework on both candidates Juliana Stratton and Andre Smith because I live in the 5th District both had a relationship with Pastor Corey Brooks and Juliana Stratton has a 10 year close relationship that is still on going and Andre Smith had a round 2 years and then publicly went against Gov. Rauner ,Pastor Corey Brooks and Ken Dunkin . so now both want to be St Rep for The 5th District AS FOR ME ONE WHO HAS A VOTE IN THE DISTRICT, IM VOTING FOR ANDRE SMITH I CAN’T TRUST JULIANA STRATTON. JUST GOOGLE HER NAME Juliana Stratton and Pastor Corey Brooks if you think it’s a joke we have to get Ken Dunkin out and she is one of them ….
    By The way I am a member of SEIU

    (Tips a cap to - burbanite -)


    “This is revenge for the Trip to NYC…and a lot of other things.

    And there was nothing that Dunkin could do about it. Dunkin is a Made Raunerite, and Stratton isn’t. And they don’t have to sit still… and take it. It for the 5th District. Its a real Raunerite battle.

    They even got signatures on Dunkin’s block so Kenny couldn’t open his door without seeing a Stratton supporter.

    We’re 3 times more diverse than Ken.

    Took you up on the challenge “Mr. Chapple” and google sent me to Mr. Smith’s comments on Capfax. Strikingly similar grammar, word usage and capitalization as your post.

    Dig anyone thinks SEIU gives two hoots about the welfare of Illinois- just remember that it is this Union which more or less funded Rod Blagojevich’s two elections for which they were repaid in multiples of tens of million of dollars thru the nonsense home health care bargaining unit regs which is now been undone in the courts. SEIU cares about its membership dues and damn the rest of us

  30. - Neveranonymous - Monday, Nov 23, 15 @ 4:48 pm:
