I am deeply disturbed after hearing about R.J. Dale Advertising having to undergo three separate audits conducted by the State of Illinois in less than a year after receiving the General Market advertising assignment of the Illinois State Lottery account. This Black owned and operated agency has undergone excessive scrutiny that I think has been unnecessary. When will this stop? They earned the account after competing against several other advertising agencies — and having done an outstanding job that obviously produced the results the Illinois State Lottery was looking for when they handled the Urban portion of the account.
I am asking my friends to send correspondence to Governor Blagojevich to stop the auditing of this agency.

Many thanks for joining me in this effort.
