IL 1st Congressional District Don Peloquin Voters Rush To Oust Bobby

The Republicans rush to derail the Metra’s $141 million Englewood Flyover Project hasn’t deterred the supporters of Don Peloquin; they’re climbing aboard his “Time For Change” campaign like a freight train.

Well know n for his hands on “let’s get this going attitude” and 25 productive years as mayor of Blue Island IL., the people of the newly redistricted 1 st Congressional District are rushing to get Bobby out. They’re not forgetful of how Don helped elect the first Hispanic and Afro-American Alderman for the city of Blue Island and they don’t want the Chicago City Politicians in charge of their districts destiny.

The most significant increase in Don’s voter support have been from many of those who are now affected by the redistricting. Many didn’t even realize the impact of it until Don woke them up with his “Unless you want all for Chicago and nothing for the suburbs and our rural areas, you’d had better get out and vote for a change. This rush to get Bobby out is more of a community need than a party vote.

New to the 1 st district, Will County residents are waking up fast and have become a large voice for the Don Peloquin “Time For Change” campaign. They don’t call it Insight, it’s hindsight, either way you slice it, being controlled by the “tentacles of Cook County politics” has never benefitted the suburban and rural areas, it’s like being robbed of our rights to live outside of the city. They even wrote and signed their own “Declaration of Independence” a Grass Roots “We The People” approach to nothing less than inciting a large scale riot in the Burbs in order to affect change.

The buzz and the chatter in some of the most highly read online communities is really heating up, and these pro Don Peloquin “Time For Change” discussions have taken on a flavor with some spice, like “Caliente”, it’s that hot.

Five year print partnership for Balreed and global golf tournament

Balreed to provide all print technology and support to the Alfred Dunhill Links Championships for the fifth year running.

It may be known to many professional golfers as the ‘Home of Golf’ but to Balreed, St. Andrews Golf Course is a ‘home away from home’.

Once again Balreed has been chosen by the organisers of the world-renowned golf championship, played at St Andrews, as the official supplier of print and document technology.

This is the fifth year the event will rely on Balreed throughout the four-day tournament to provide and support print, copy and scan devices to media tents, European tour offices and tournament offices across all three courses that the event plays on.

The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship is a magnet for golfers from every corner of the world. It has a unique format and incorporates two separate competitions – an individual professional tournament for the world’s leading golfers with a US$5 million prize fund, and a team competition which features some of the most celebrated amateur golfers playing alongside the professionals.

Lee Westwood leads the British challenge for the title this year, and many of the world’s leading international players will be there to compete with him. In the amateur ranks the playing roster is sure to include some of the biggest names from the world of entertainment, sport and business. Michael Douglas, Samuel L Jackson, Morgan Freeman, Hugh Grant and Dennis Quaid have all shared the fairways in previous years with sporting greats like Sir Steve Redgrave, Sir Bobby Charlton, Boris Becker, Ian Botham, Ruud Gullit, Johan Cruyff and Nigel Mansell so expectations of the 2012 field are very high.

The tournament starts on Thursday 4th October and will play over three championship Scottish courses: The Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.

Balreed’s support extends to all three courses and staff will be on site throughout the build-up and the tournament itself to help organisers prepare and manage the event.

Balreed’s Managing Director Robin Stanton-Gleaves commented: “When we were first selected to provide print support to the event five years ago we were thrilled, and even more so to be invited back the following year, it was a testament to our hard work. So to still be the chosen print partner five years later is a sincere compliment to all the Balreed team and we will continue to do what we have been doing which is careful planning and precise execution, providing service to the highest standard to ensure the tournament runs smoothly.”
