Friends for Valerie Burd to walk precincts on Saturday's until November
Come join Valerie Burd, who is running as the Democratic candidate for the seat being vacated by retiring State Rep. Kay Hatcher, is a former ward 2 alderman and mayor of the United City of Yorkville. She currently is on US Senator Mark Kirk’s Women’s Advisory Board and on the Kendall County Board of Health’s Environmental Advisory Board. She is the owner of Positive Media Solutions, Inc., which does community guides and maps.

Valerie and volunteers will be walking precincts in targeted areas of Plano, Montgomery, Yorkville, and up in Kane County from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays, canvassing voters and encouraging them to turn out for the Nov. 4 election. They will be meeting at 9:45 am in front of Foxy's Ice Cream on Hydraulic street.

“I have a daughter and two sons-in-law on active duty,” Burd says.

“They’ve done tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. There are many other people who have sons, daughters and loved one either on active duty or veterans, who have put their lives on the line so that we can live in a free country. I would hope voters will support me, but if they can’t, my message as I knock on doors is, pick the person who best meshes with your views, then get out and vote for them. It’s the least we can do, when others do so much.”

Friends for Valerie Burd will be holding walking “Blitzes” each weekend until the Nov. 4 election. For more information, call 630-553-7510 or email or go to the campaign Facebook page at
Why am I running?
I consider myself a moderate/Independent voter who supports the current State Rep. Kay Hatcher. I believe in supporting the best individual, and have never voted down a party line before. I also believe strongly in working with people from all perspectives and political beliefs towards compromise.
I decided to run because I love our country, our Constitution and the political process. I hear so many people saying negative things about politicians – wanting to kick them all out of office. But when we look back in our history and see the leaders who have stepped forward when we needed them most to solve our problems, we have to feel that God has blessed us many times. There are many good people, Democrats and Republicans, working to solve the problems we are facing. We need to support these people, not the ones who are trying to tear us part.
