To all my supporters throughout the 17th District: GO GRASSROOTS!

I am very proud and also humbled at the outcome of the primary election. Perhaps the best part is that it came not from any one county or region, but from all around the 17th.

We wrapped up the last week of the campaign as we had done every other week: working nonstop, getting our message to the people.

As I'm sure you know, a major snowstorm hit the southern part of the district Monday night into Tuesday (in Pike County, they got 12 inches. ) Turnout was low. In some counties, voters crossed over to have their say in hotly contested local races.

But the faithful made it to the polls, and let their collective voice be heard. For that I am very thankful!

I also have the deepest appreciation for those who put their convictions into action: making a donation, walking neighborhoods, hanging literature, knocking on doors, putting out signs, calling neighbors, working as election judges, and/or honoring me with a personal endorsement.

The Zinga for Congress effort from now to November will be challenged HEAVILY by the opposition. But the fact remains that WE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN. Now more than ever is the time for us to pull together as one.

I pledge to each and every one of you that my campaign will be an honest assessment of the state of the 17th, and how we can improve it. It will be a positive and truthful campaign to the end, as it has always been. I will be discussing more ideas and issues over the next weeks, so please visit this website often.

We all know we need new representation in the 17th District. I intend to continue building an even stronger base throughout the district, showing that each person counts. I've always said that YOU are the boss. You hire your U.S. Representative, through your vote and through your tax dollars. You deserve to know all you can, and then I will leave it up to you the voter to decide.

In the meantime, I will be calling on some of you for help. Please let us know here if you can come on board one of the most exciting campaigns in the state of Illinois. You may wind up giving only a few hours of your time or a few dollars, but the grassroots has got us this far and will take us all the way. Remember, all we need is 50% plus 1!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support, your help, and your vote. Now let's go to work....!
