In fact, our opponent and special interest groups in Madison and Washington, DC are preparing to spend $1 million to defeat him. They want to go back to a day when the County Executive wasn't held accountable - and they will do whatever it takes to win. In order to combat the negative attacks they are launching, we need your financial help today.
