Local Suzuki Dealer Pulls Ads from FX's Rescue Me

Local Chicagoland Suzuki dealer, Daniel F. Sledz owner of Fox Valley Suzuki, announced via the PTC Chicago Chapter (Bob Sherman, Director) that his dealership would no longer support Rescue Me on the FX network.  “As a father of three very young children, I am thankful organizations like yours are out there making television media a safer haven for our youth.”  Mr. Sledz further stated that his dealership spends millions of dollars in advertising and has directed his agency to reallocate his budget away from this type of destructive programming.  The PTC sends congratulations to Fox Valley Suzuki, the Chicago Chapter and its Director Bob Sherman.

CHAPTER DIRECTOR BIO

 

Bob Sherman is an information technology professional who resides in Glenview with his wife Patricia.  In addition to his work with the PTC, Bob also serves as president of the Glenview Art League, and as a volunteer tutor helps students who are failing in school.  His interests include art (his self-portrait is above), history (he has published a book of family gold rush letters) and physical fitness (he has climbed the Sears Tower and John Hancock Building several times). 

 

Bob at first agreed to be interim chapter director until someone else was found.  Then something happened.  A good friend of his was seriously injured when someone opened fire on students at the University of Illinois.  Bob immediately took the word “interim” out of his title.  In an E-mail to chapter members he said “The shooting of our fellow PTC helper should make all or us more determined than ever to do something”.
