The IL-19 Democratic Challenger for 2010

Tim Bagwell, PhD (D-Olney) is challenging Rep. John Shimkus (R-Collinsville) in the 2010 Election. Dr. Bagwell sent letters and emails to all chairman in IL-19 today with petitions attached or enclosed.

It is time for real representation in Central and Southern Illinois, said Dr. Bagwell.

His statement echoes throughout the district after the egregious behavior constituents witnessed on the floor when Rep. Shimkus walked out on the President's health care speech before it was over. His reason was so childish, too:

Obama's tone wasn't cooperative and his ideas were not new, Shimkus' spokesman told the Tribune's Mark Silva.
For a graduate of West Point and a retired U. S. Army officer, this is conduct unbecoming. He does not have the luxury of a private citizen exercising his opinion as long as he is in congress.

LTC John Shimkus (RET) is obligated to respect the office of the President. He has turned his back on his Commander in Chief. In doing so, Rep. Shimkus turned his back on the people of Central and So. IL.

The time for new representation in IL-19 is long overdue. Tim Bagwell has a personal website: with LinkedIn and Facebook links. Please give generously on his ActBlue site and sign his petitions.

Tim Bagwell does not turn his back on the people of Illinois.
