Meier's time is up, Moore says in TV spot
Don Moore, the Troy Republican challenging Rep. Charlie Meier (R-Okawville) in the 108th District GOP primary, recently launched a TV spot explaining why Illinois can no longer afford Meier as a state representative, stating that it was in Springfield that Meier changed.
"The hardest decision I have to make on the farm is when to put a heifer down," Moore said in the video. "I'm not mad at the heifer, it's just no longer than animal you once knew."
In the ad, Moore likens Meier to a creature that is unlike its former self.
"Just like I'm not mad at Charlie Meier for voting for (House Speaker Mike) Madigan's 32 percent tax increase, I'm just disappointed with what Charlie let Springfield do to him and to us," Moore said.
Moore mentions the numerous budget increases that Meier has recently supported, including income tax increases, and refusing to freeze property tax increases, in addition to amnesty for undocumented immigrants.
"I like the Charlie that I used to know, but I can't afford Springfield Charlie," Moore said in the ad.
