From the Dan Patlak for Cook County Board of Review campaign:

Editor: records supplied to me from the Patlak campaign show that Sean Morrison voted Democrat since at least 1996 and has donated to Democratic candidates at least since 2003. You can see those records here:

Wheeling—As the election for Commissioner of the Board of Review commences its final stages, several individuals within the GOP are challenging Sean Morrison regarding his true Party affiliation. According to records obtained from the Chicago Board of Elections (attached), Morrison is more than just a supporter of the Democrat Party. Morrison, who was registered to vote in Chicago’s 19th ward until late 2008, has donated to the Democrat Party several times over the last two years with the last contribution being in June of 2009. In addition, he has also contributed to a Democrat Aldermanic candidate. While the fact he has taken a Democrat ballot in five of the last seven primaries is shocking (documents attached), the fact that he has never taken a Republican ballot raises several questions, including ones that relate to why he is running on the Republican ticket. Leading the challenge for transparency of Sean Morrison’s true intentions is the GOP endorsed candidate for Commissioner of the Board of Review, Dan Patlak, a long time, well respected Republican leader.

“Sean Morrison is nothing but a 19th ward Chicago Democrat and his record proves it,” said Patlak. “Morrison needs to explain to Republican voters why he filed to run in the Republican primary instead of against Brendan Houlihan in the Democrat primary where he belongs, or do the right thing and withdraw from the election” continued Dan Patlak. “Morrison has told Party insiders that he has made contributions to national Republican organizations and that qualifies him to run in a local Republican primary but I’m not buying it and rank and file Republicans shouldn’t either. Where I come from, when you decide to vote in a particular Party’s primary, you are making a declaration of your Party affiliation. When you spend your whole life voting Democrat, you can’t expect reasonable people to believe that you are actually a Republican. Add to that the fact he has contributed to the 19th ward Democrat’s and his story becomes unbelievable,” concluded Dan Patlak.

Sean Morrison suggests that his contributions from 2005 to 2007 to the RNCC are proof of his Republican credentials. However, it is quite common for owners of companies which are Government Services Administration contractors to contribute to the party of the administration which controls their contracts.

Dan Patlak worked as an analyst at the Board of Review for eight years from 1999 to 2006 specializing in residential, commercial apartment and exempt properties. After completing advanced courses in property appraisal required to become a Certified Illinois Assessing Officer, Dan was elected Assessor of Wheeling Township in 2005 and re-elected in 2009. Mr. Patlak received his real estate broker’s license in 1986 and is a Graduate of the Real Estate Institute (GRI). He has been a member of the National and Illinois Associations of Realtors for the past twenty-three years. He is also a member of the International Association of Assessing Officers. Mr. Patlak has been a Republican precinct captain for sixteen years, first in Maine Township where he served as the organization’s Treasurer and since 2002 in Wheeling Township where he is a Deputy Committeeman. He is also a veteran of many political campaigns having worked on federal, state, county and local races. Dan resides in the Village of Wheeling with his wife Dulce and eight year old son Teddy.
