Connor Vlakancic, born in Aurora, IL is an “Illinois Native Son”, Founder & Owner of Votermagnet.
An individual voter’s personal “WHY” is perhaps because they want NOW, in this 2022 Illinois general Election, a truly comprehensive candidate vetting process of the major political duopoly parties’ heir apparent candidates. Pragmatically accurately concluding that an Independent candidate in this 2022 Illinois general Election is the opportunity and means to ensure this scrutiny will be fully accomplished.
However, there is also the “PURPOSE” to donate funding for Votermagnet, a political campaign much like any business. It needs to pay operational expenses of a roof-overhead and outreach communications programs and projects. Telephone and Internet access infrastructure costs money. Campaign literature needs to be printed and delivered to voters with the printing company and US Post Office requiring to be paid.
NOBODY involved in working – in or for – a political campaign has ever become wealthy from the effort. Funding a political election campaign is not a get-rich scheme for a political campaign’s “insiders” as certainly corrupt politicians that have been forced to resign and/or convicted of malfeasance have been forced to understand.
A company is organized to achieve a profit for the investors as the reason money is invested (not donated) because a personal financial profit incentive is the underlying purpose of investing (except Enron Corporation was a big loss for a lot of people).
A political campaign must depend on donations from civic-minded voters, people that want to level the “fat cats” campaigns, and is contrary to the ROI motivation of financial supporters of the major political parties’ candidates.
The inquiring mind that wants to learn is who we are as human beings, and creating knowledge is a mental investment that requires a financial expense.
