To the Editor:

Thank you to all of you who voted for me March 18 to be a candidate for state representative in the 50th District of Illinois. Even though I was running unopposed, you still took the time to vote for me. Your encouragement is greatly appreciated.  

To those of you who have not yet met me, I would very much like to talk with you. Please contact me and let’s discuss the issues that are important to you. You can email me at Val.Burd1@gmail.com, or reach me via my website at www.valerieburd.com.

I have a survey on my website that you can fill out to send me your opinions. In the next seven months, I will be out knocking on doors and meeting with as many residents of Kane and Kendall counties as I can. If you or your neighbors would like to get together with me, let me know. What you think and have to say are important to me, no matter if you are Republican, Democrat or Independent. We all need to work together if we are going to solve the very serious problems that are facing our state.  

My opponent and I have very different viewpoints on all the issues. That’s why it is important for you to take the time to get to know us. Ask us questions. Don’t rely on hearsay about either of us. Get the facts. Next November, you will have a real choice. It’s an important choice for our district. I hope you will consider voting for me.

Valerie Burd

Candidate for Illinois’ 50th
