Local Rescue Dog Unsure Who He’s Voting For In LaSalle County States Attorney Race

September 13th, 2016

ILLINOIS VALLEY – LaSalle County States Attorney candidates, Brian Towne and Karen Donnelly, are vying for votes from the pet community. The Cob took time last week to interview a local rescue dog that is still an undecided voter in the race.

We caught up with Rover, a yellow lab from Streator, and talked to him about his thoughts during this election cycle and who he would be voting for.

Q:What do you think of the race between Towne and Donnelly so far? A: Rough!

Q:Both seem to be heavily involved in the pet rescue community. Do you think that has swayed you in any way? A: Bow wow.

Q:What do you think about the controversy surrounding recent Facebook posts and flyers sent out by candidates last week? A: (Said nothing, licked butt)

With the Illinois legislature opening up voting to dogs over 18 dog years old, this base of voters has seen an increase in advertisement dollars from candidates state wide. Cats have yet to gain the right to vote, prompting protests and demonstrations in the coming weeks.

The Cob advises everyone this election year to get your puppy registered to vote!
