Press Release: Phil Nagel, Candidate
Announcement Of Candidacy
I had the privilege to meet Phil two years ago when he had a desire to run for public office because at the time he was advocating for Illinois parents. He was part of a massive effort to stand up for children and parental rights. Phil, even drafted legislation that passed in the Illinois General Assembly.
In 2022, he ran against Sen. Patrick Joyce who is part of the liberal corrupt junta in Springfield. The people of the district have been forgotten by Joyce as time and time again as he fell into corrupt Democratic practices. With the economy crashing and street crime ever increasing the only choice for Illinois residents is a mass Exodus.
To Joyce it did not matter because he became wealthy on the backs of every blue collar worker and farmer in his district. As a matter of fact the Joyce family is a dynasty of corrupt politicians. The citizens in the 40th district no longer have a voice in Springfield. They have become muted and thrown aside.
It's time for a change. Phil Nagel is that change. His plan is for a better, stronger and safer Illinois. Phil has a heart of Gold and a compassion to help the people. We need to support this veteran as once again he wants to serve but instead of a battlefield this will be in Springfield where the real battle lay ahead.
Support Phil Nagel for Senator in the 40th District.
“Today, I would like to announce my candidacy for Illinois State Senate in the 40th District. As many of you already know, Illinois has become unlivable. While we struggle to pay our bills, the fat cats at the top are living quite well, none more evident than the 40th District.
This has never been more apparent than it is today as democrat corruption is on full display with the indictment of Speaker Madigan, one of the longest serving politicians in the history of the United States, right next to Joe Biden, Nancy Polosei, and the Joyce family. Unfortunately, Illinois has been subjected to the same political rot as the rest of the country.
Many of you may not know this but Senator Patrick Joyce’s father (Sen. Jerome Joyce) held this same senate seat for 17 years only to step down his final year in office in what the news called a Joyce for Joyce Family Matter, in order to gift his senate seat to his wife (Janet Joyce) Patrick Joyce’s mother, stating: “This is my special way of thanking her for her love and support all these years'' (https://www.lib.niu.edu/1992/ii920626.html). Senator Janet Joyce then went on to finish her husband's final year in the senate and received her state benefits too.
If you ask yourself why you were never gifted a senate seat, well it’s because your last name isn’t Joyce.
Now fast forward to 2019, Patrick Joyce is appointed to the family senate seat. You may ask yourself, outside of family ties, what is the common denominator here. That common denominator is that all of the Joyce’s (Mom, Dad & Jr) were either appointed and/or served under indicted Speaker Mike Madigan.
After being appointed, Senator Patrick Joyce then went on to vote to make Illinois a Sanctuary State, while also allowing men into women's bathrooms and school locker rooms.
Right now illegal immigrants are flooding into Illinois from our non-existent border and thanks to Sen. Joyce, Illinois has rolled out the red carpet for them all. Believe me when I tell you that our country is at the precipice, and in 2024 we will either correct the path and save our Republic, or we will finish off our current path and become a full out banana republic where it becomes common practice to arrest your political opponents.
In 2022 we put Senator Joyce on notice as he spent $3.5 million dollars to slander and
silence my campaign. I was also hit with hate speech for exposing the laws that Senator Joyce voted YES to. All of this while I also was forced to deal with nefarious people sitting outside of my house that followed my minor son and his girlfriend at all hours of the day.
If this is what they are willing to do to a United States Air Force Veteran, First Responder, Blue Collar Worker, how far do you think they’re willing to go to keep power?
The choice is yours, either embrace record Inflation, open borders, sanctuary state status, energy dependence instead of independence, skyrocketing prices on food and gas, attacks on women and children OR don’t.
The choice is yours and it always has been.”
