Defeat Supreme Court Justice Thomas Kilbride

On the Tazewell County November 3 ballot will be a judicial retention question.

Thomas Kilbride killed the 2016 Fair Map ballot initiative.  Kilbride killed the 2014 Term Limit ballot initiative.  Kilbride is Madigan's closest ally on the Supreme Court.

Tazewell County Republicans urge everyone to VOTE NO to retain Illinois Supreme Court Justice Thomas Kilbride for the 3rd Supreme Court District.

Link to the Vote NO on Kilbride Facebook page.

Sign the Pledge to Vote NO on Kilbride.

The current Illinois Supreme Court has 4 Democrats and 3 Republicans.  The 3rd Supreme Court District is Republican majority, and removing Democrat Thomas Kilbride would lead to a 4 Republican to 3 Democrat majority on the court.

VOTE NO TO RETAIN TOM KILBRIDE!

Each of the 7 Justices on the Illinois Supreme Court are on the ballot every 10 years for retention on the Supreme Court.  For a sitting Supreme Court Justice to remain on the court, that justice needs 60% of the votes cast for retention.

Thomas Kilbride has been on the court since 2000.  In 2010, three other Supreme Court Justices won retention votes with 80% Yes votes.  Thomas Kilbride only received 66% Yes Votes.  Flipping 3% of the vote in 2020 would only require 31,000 voters in the 21 counties in the 3rd Supreme Court District.  In Tazewell County, about 1,130 voters need to be flipped.

    I’m a big proponent for term limits ,
    which may never happen since it’s been shot down so many times, of course by democrats.
    Out with the old in with the new! Give someone else a chance.
    Career politicians need to take a back seat now!
