Some residents in the 16th District of Winnebago County have received postcards urging their support for REALTOR® Jean Crosby as a Winnebago County Board member in the March 15 primary election.
Two sets of postcards were mailed in support of Crosby with the titles “Vote Jean Crosby” and “Jean Crosby – a leader you can trust.”
One postcard highlights her business success, her leadership talents within local, state and national associations, and her involvement in the community. The other postcard features her commitment to holding the line on taxes, improving property values and reducing crime while bringing new ideas to the Winnebago County Board.
The mailing was sent as part of an independent expenditure. Independent expenditure activities take place in support of a candidate for public office without any coordination with the candidate or the candidate’s campaign.
In 2015, Crosby received the NAR Distinguished Service Award, the “highest honor an NAR member can receive.” She is a partner and owner of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Crosby Starck Real Estate in Rockford, Ill., and has been a REALTOR® for 32 years. In 1999, she served as IAR president. Read more about her real estate career and her election campaign.
