Rep. Pat Verschoore discussion

I've invited Representative Verschoore to provide a statement pointing up his accomplishments in office, current issues and/or legislation he's working on, and his views on issues of importance in the future as well as any other topics he'd like to address.
I will post it here if and when I receive it.

This will be a permanent home for discussion of Representative Verschoore. Please keep comments civil and responsible. I will provide a link to this discussion as well as discussion threads for State Senator Jacobs, State Representative Boland, and Rep. Lane Evans in the sidebar for future reference.

Pat are you the same guy that played Sam Drucker on Petticoat Junction in the 60's my wife says you are but I disagree!
I think that your are the guy that owned the shop on Chico and the Man.

Let's try to elevate comments a bit, shall we?

"The Inside Dope said...
Iowa Lib, Yes, I agree with your basic point. But my urge to go for humor outweighed my political correctness in this instance."

come on dope.... take a pill!

I'm not sure what your point is moline, but I guess it's that I shouldn't chastise anyone for the use of demeaning humor when I use it for people like, say, Tom Delay?

I'm sorry you don't see the distinction.

I'd like the discussion of local candidates to be something a little more serious that comparing the politician to some buffoonish TV characters.

I didn't delete the post, I just urge people to try to elevate their comments to something more than personal insults.

Otherwise, the comments will serve no purpose at all.

But I've taken a pill anyway, just to make you (and myself) happy. If it works for Limbaugh....

I want to commend Rep. Pat Verschoore on his fine performance as 72nd District State Rep. Everyone knows that Pat Verschoore gets up early, works long days and focuses on every little consituent problem that comes his way. His hard work is paying off for the 72nd district.

Pat Verschoore's claim to fame is that he is no threat to Mike Jacobs.
When Brunsvold sucked in with the Hairdo to the DNR it created a vacancy. Mike Darrow was already promised it by John Gianlis, Lane Evans etc.
The Jacobs stopped him! It was offered to Jim Bonzack, but he turned it down
Organized labor sqauked and Verschoore was the third string pick.

Denny, Donny, Mike and J.P. Jacobs sure must be powerfull!

Usher - take your meds. Who the hell is that JBP guy? Some janitor for you all? BTW - the Jacobs blog is on another page you stupid moron usher....

Where is Verschoore on the hog confinement in his own back yard anyway? Care to comment Rep Vershoore??

Mega Hog operations like the one proposed can cause lots of problems for the environment. I heard the owner was a close friend of Vershore's family so he's gonna keep his mouth shut.

I await response.

Sorry about that, I should have included Mike's little sister Tori, as well. Like Mike and J.P., Tori was groomed by her father Denny Jacobs to run for high politcal office.

J.P. is a very charismatic young leader. He is very active in Rock Island and currently serves as Chairman of Senator Mike Jacobs' reelection campaign. J.P.'s name is being mentioned as a replacemnt for Rock Island Mayor Mark Schweibert upon his retirement.

Tori is a teacher at Glenview, and like her brother Mike, really cares about the future of our children. Internal talks suggest Tori, a very bright and attractive mother of two, has her sights set on Congress.

As for your question to Pat Verschoore I can't speak for him, but if you live in rural area, don't ya kinda expect a few pigs?? What is the world coming to when a farmer can't do what he or she wants on their own ground?

No janitor is what Mike and his brother would be doing if they didn't have Denny for a Dad!
Jp is active in what excactly?
Mike Darrow has his pick of any Rock Island office!

Usher unless someone gets appointed to the office of RI Mayor somehow then you guys are out of luck....

Tori who? What kind of joke are you playing here Usher? This is ridiculous.

By the way - the Jacobs blog is on anothe rpage!

I would point out that no Jacobs family mambers has lost an election in Rock Island County insome thirty years.

J.P. Jacobs who resided in Watch Hil is a leading member of the Quad City Regional Econmoic Devlopment Authority. In addition, J.P. is very active in the Greek church in Rock Island. Furthermore, J.P. serves as Chairman of the Jacobs for Senate Campaign which has raised some $350,000.00 thus far.

Obvioulsy you do not know Tori Jacobs Degreave. Trust me the voters are going to love her!

This is Vershore's page I thought??

According to HeadUsher evidently, every page is a Jacobs page.

O.k well then I have a question for Verscoore. If what Indy said was true then he owes some dues.
Since Mike Darrow was John Gianulis's first pick and O'Brien raised a stink about the Democrats picking a Labor candidate didn't you benifit from O'Brien's lobbying the unions and precinct committeemen?
Aren't you beholding to O'Brian since it was going to be Darrow until O'brien started raising hell? Between Lane Evans , Denny Jacobs and Joel Brusvold they came up with you!
And the best thing for you yet. O'Brain backed you because you were Labor's choice.
Don't you feel some gratitude to this guy or what?
