Tree’s Voting Record Shows Missed Elections
Democratic Congressional candidate has voted only twice since 2000.
According to the article, Tree voted in the 2008 and 2010 general elections. He did not vote in primary or municipal elections in the past because he wanted to maintain non partisanship as a colonel in the United States Air Force Reserve.
“I have not voted in local non-partisan elections before for the same reasons regarding the military culture, even though at a very local level, I understand the races are not partisan,” Tree said to Patch today.
The full Daily Herald story also discusses the voting records of the other Democrats, Brad Schneider of Deerfield, Ilya Sheyman of Waukegan and Vivek Bavda of Mundelein as well as the man they want to challenge in the Nov. 6 general election, Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth).
