Elevating the Voice of Safety and Integrity: Our Support for Mary Cole

At AmpliVox Sound Systems, we've always believed in the power of clear communication. As a local small business, we've seen firsthand the importance of community, safety, and the values that bind us together.

Today, we want to use our platform to amplify a voice that resonates with our core values: Mary Cole, a candidate for Lake County State's Attorney.

Mary Cole's commitment to ensuring the safety of our community aligns perfectly with our mission.

Just as we aim to provide clear and effective communication tools, Mary seeks to bring transparency, integrity, and justice to our criminal justice system.

Her vision of a safer Lake County is one we wholeheartedly support.

Mary's personal story, growing up in Deerfield, is a testament to her deep-rooted connection to our community. Her parents chose Deerfield for its safety and quality education, values that Mary aims to uphold and enhance.

As a local business, we understand the importance of a safe environment for our families, employees, and customers. Mary's dedication to preserving and improving this safety is commendable.

Her journey through the legal landscape is both inspiring and telling of her commitment. From her early days advocating for domestic violence victims to her tenure as a public defender, she's seen the system from multiple angles. This comprehensive understanding ensures that she's not just another politician but a seasoned professional ready to make impactful changes.

Attorney Mary Cole announces bid to be Lake County State's Attorney behind an AmpliVox Flat Hardrock Maple Lectern

The current State's Attorney's office has faced criticism for its approach, which many believe is too politically motivated. Mary has been vocal about the need to depoliticize the office and focus on the core mission: justice and safety. Her insights into the current administration's shortcomings position her as a candidate who's not only aware of the problems but also equipped with solutions.

Mary's vision goes beyond just addressing the current issues. She promises to restore trust, honor, and integrity to the State's Attorney's office. Her commitment to removing politics from the equation and focusing solely on justice is a refreshing and much-needed stance. With Mary at the helm, we can expect a balanced, compassionate, and effective criminal justice system that truly serves the people.

In recent times, the State's Attorney's office has been swayed by political agendas that don't necessarily prioritize the safety and well-being of our community. Mary Cole's stance against such politicization is a breath of fresh air. Her focus on the community's best interests over political experimentation is a direction we believe in.

Election Day in November 2024 is not just a date on the calendar; it's an opportunity for us to shape the future of Lake County. We urge our fellow community members to get involved, learn more about Mary Cole, and consider supporting her vision for a safer, more secure Lake County.

For more information on Mary Cole's campaign and how you can get involved, visit www.maryforlakecounty.com. Let's amplify the voice of safety, integrity, and positive change!
