On last evening Illinois State Senator and Thornton Township Democratic Committeeman Napoleon Harris was joined by Democratic leaders throughout Thornton Township in announcing his endorsement of Harvey Businessman Anthony McCaskill for Mayor of Harvey. The announcement took place during a meeting of the Democrats of Thornton Township at the Beggars Pizza restaurant in Harvey, Illinois.
“I am extremely proud to endorse Anthony McCaskill as the next Mayor of Harvey. My beloved Harvey has experienced numerous hardships dating back nearly forty years. However, the time is now to elect someone who truly has the right business background that can begin to lift our town from the unfortunate series of circumstances and misfortunes that has crushed the city’s finances and reputation.” says Senator Harris.
At the center of the April 4th, Mayoral election is public safety. Harvey has endured 90 plus homicides over the past four years. An overwhelming majority of these murders have gone unsolved. In addition, there have been six police chiefs hired within the past four years which has led to more questions and scrutiny directed at the management of the police department.
Senator Harris adds, “Harvey is a town of six miles and less than thirty thousand residents. Ninety homicides in just four years is not an accurate reflection of the town in which we all love so much. Anthony McCaskill will take a no-nonsense approach to the Harvey’s crime issues. He will ensure that every facet of the police department is fully resourced and the current group of sworn police personnel are properly trained and prepared to handle these mounting issues.”
“Having the endorsement of our hometown champion is such an honor. Senator Harris understands clearly of the challenges in which Harvey has experienced over numerous decades. However, he also has a keen sense of what it takes to truly reform our town. His love and passion for Harvey mirrors that of my own. If elected, I look forward to a wonderful working relationship with him that will only produce positive results for the city of Harvey.” says Anthony McCaskill.
