Dixon should move on; vote Sacco-Miller

Published: Friday, Nov. 2, 2012 1:15 a.m. CDT

Last election cycle, I voted for Henry Dixon for Lee County state’s attorney. He’s a very honorable man. In the last 4 years, sitting in meetings with him, I feel it’s time for him to move on. 

I’ve seen a continual misdirection to the county board and zoning boards in reference to what is made available to the public on what’s going on. Do they have something to hide?

More than once, the Illinois Attorney General’s office has overturned direction Mr. Dixon has given. Is another one coming on the transcripts of the permitting process currently going through the zoning board?

I feel it’s a shame to the victims and their families, along with the accused, to not get a trial in a timely manner. It isn’t fair to them to have to wait so long, weighing heavily on all involved. Anna Sacco-Miller plans to move those quicker to trial by utilizing the strengths of her office employees to the needs in the courtroom.

Another issue is our youths. Too many are going down the wrong path. Anna has plans to help them from seeing the courtroom time and again. That’s what we all want, correct?

Anna knows those issues concern Lee County people. She’s worked in the state’s attorney’s office before. With that insight, she knows what it takes as a state’s attorney. 

Let’s make a change for the future and elect someone who has the passion and compassion for such an important elected position. Join me in voting for Anna Sacco-Miller.
