And when he did show up, Pawar voted for the largest property tax hike in Chicago history. But Melissa Conyears-Ervin shows up for us every day.
As State Rep, Melissa protected child care for Chicago families. Her plan will make the Treasurer’s Office more independent from politicians. And ensure we invest in every Chicago neighborhood, not just downtown.
Secretary of State Jesse White: She’s ready for this.
Melissa Conyears-Ervin: Oh, you bet I am.
Announcer: Melissa Conyears-Ervin for Treasurer.
She won the first round 44-42.
Her contributions have been picking up lately. and you gotta figure that at least some of those Toni Preckwinkle backers will be switching their cash over to Rep. Conyears-Ervin.

Great ad, highlights Pawar’s absences and love of higher taxes.
Trash your opponent as a no-show career politician, give reasons to vote for you, feel good words/images, references to (apparently) detailed policy proposals - a lot of good stuff packed into a small space. Jesse White plus her energetic reply to him is the cherry on top. A-
On rare occasions I see Pawar walking through the lobby of City Hall. He walks in a very exaggerated manner with his shoulders elavated and is nose in the air. It seems like he wants to project an image of greatness and a quasi deity.
Cook County Democratic Party chairman Joe Berrios is in a tough battle for reelection to the county Board of Review, which hears property tax appeals. Here’s how an ally explained why he deserves to keep his $100,000 post: “Joe really works at that job. He’s in at 9 and stays till 5.”
Solid B. Only nits would be not mixing messages in the same ad, and perhaps not saying you’ll make the office more independent from politicians followed by “hey, here’s an entrenched politician!” even though Jesse is popular.
