WTTW’s 2018 Voters’ Guide to the Cook County Primary is an online resource designed to inform voters about the candidates running for office in the March 20 election.
Candidates were given two minutes to tell voters where they stand on the issues, why they feel they are best qualified and what they intend to do if elected or re-elected. The messages were recorded at the WTTW studios at no cost to the candidates. The Voters’ Guide is an online version of Candidate Free Time, pioneered by WTTW in the 1992 race for U.S. Senate. This year’s Candidate Free Time is produced with and underwritten in part by the League of Women Voters of Cook County.

What is your vision for this office?
To slash the oppressive size of Cook County government by cutting taxes and regulations, thereby increasing morale to 5.5 million American citizens.
What is the most pressing issue facing constituents, and how can you help address it?
Oppressive taxes -- We can, together, expose the history of corruption regarding the fake fight and pre-forma votes on our county board whereby democrats and fake republicans conspire together to keep power, keep taxes very high, keep citizens demoralized, and for the political class make more money.
We can dig deeper, pressure fake liberal media, and illustrate the quid pro quo between Cook County Finance Chairman John Daley, Cook County Assessor Joe Berrios, Tax lawyer/Illinois Speaker Mike Madigan and others including President Toni Preckwinkle.
The Democrat Party Establishment is run by Democrats.
The Republican Party Establishment is run by Democrats.
Conservatism is the answer; the vast majority of county residents are conservative. However they do not know that the fake Republican Commissioners, including the chairs of the Illinois and Cook Republican Party, are both double-agent INFILTRATORS, answering to John Daley. We are talking about, and naming names, Tim Schneider and Sean Morrison.
Hello, I’m Carl Segvich and I’m your Republican candidate for Cook County Board Commissioner. I stand with Americans who DEMAND more accountability from OUR government -- less taxes, regulations, bureaucracy and less GOVERNMENT period. NO more liberal policies for affirmative action and ILLEGAL ALIENS.
Politicians have audacity to trap us with red light & speed cameras and levy taxes on bags and water to GRAB our money.
Commissioners use our offices of PUBLIC TRUST to protect ILLEGALS. This means overcrowded schools, higher crime rates, and our jobs are being taken by people here ILLEGALLY. Costly policies are destroying our economy, our very LIVES! We are losing our homeland!
Many residents are FORCED to leave Illinois. This is a vicious cycle of big government driving out tax payers and the jobs their families depend on. The result is: we have fewer remaining taxpayers in Cook County, and those who DO remain get a Bigger tax bill. The public sector is cannibalizing the private sector.
In order to make government accountable to our residents and pensioners, we DEMAND fiscal policies which reduce government spending. We MUST reduce regulations to provide incentives to corporations. Let’s make Cook County OPEN for Business again.
The cowardly Daley political crime-family worked with Madigan for 50 years to destroy Illinois. Then they inflicted anti-American Obama in OUR White House.
We need a candidate to take on SNEAKY Liberal Democrat JOHN Daley this November! I’m the only one with GUTS to take on all the FAKE Republican double-agents on OUR County Board, covering up for Berrios, Preckwinkle, Dorothy Brown and the DALEYS with pro-forma votes and FAKE fights, running NO OPPOSITION candidates. I am the opposition.
