Sangamon County Board Member Tim Schweska Endorses Alexi Giannoulias for US Senate

On February 2, 2010 voters will go to the polls to nominate an individual to fill the US Senate seat once held by President Barack Obama.

Because of recent actions by other politicians, ethics and corruption will be a major issue. "During his time in office as Illinois State Treasurer, Alexi Giannoulias has set a standard to which all politicians should be held" Sangamon County Board Member Tim Schweska said. He has ended pay to play politics within the Illinois State Treasurer's office. He has refused to take money from corporate political action committees and federal lobbyists. Moreover, he has done more to help clean up corrupt business dealings within the 18th District in Sangamon County than any other statewide politician has. This is why Sangamon County Board Member Tim Schweska is endorsing Alexi Giannoulias for US Senate.
