Fewer voters than ever think their Congressional Representative deserves reelection. It's up to you to change it!

I like the dysfunction, means they can't reach into our pockets.
Tony July 23, 2014 at 07:02 am
I would like to see some younger people get in office myself, but if thats the only Democrate thenRead More so be it.

Yet another show of tolerance from the "open minded" left.
This week Randy Hultgren once again aligned  himself with the far right wing of his party with his “No” vote to save highway construction jobs.
Susan glad anderson July 19, 2014 at 08:08 am
Mike/Gerard - are you really prepared for another recession, because that is what could come withRead More the shock to the economy with the loss of some 700,000 construction jobs and the many more hundreds of thousands, if not millions of jobs that support these highway jobs. Remember that there are engineers who plan the projects, dozens of suppliers who provide the materials, truckers who move the materials and the millions of dollars lost to the communities along the way by each of these groups of people who now have much less money to spend in their communities. Plus, you have to pay the now unemployed workers unemployment insurance and perhaps other social safety net benefits! I find your thinking short sighted and if every one felt this way our road, schools and communities would be in ruins.

And let's not forget the safety factor here. Gerald & Mike -- you know who to blame now if youRead More blow a tire or get tossed of your motorcycle in a huge pot hole. Personally, I think Randy just wants to keep up his nearly perfect ranking with the Heritage Foundation -- probably gets more Koch money that way.

Gerald, I'd like to know what has been stolen from road work?......Sandy and Susan, come on now youRead More know they'll just outsource these jobs to China! LOL Baaahaaaaa. We'll just let the suits do their jobs. Maybe Randy will pitch in and spread the asphalt that reaches inexcess of 120 degrees on a cool day. We'll throw him out there when it's 95 and 100% humidity, he'll survive just fine! LOL Baaaahaaaaa. Hey Randy, there's 3 bridges that have been closed in Illinois because they're falling down, remember those. How about the school bus that was on one when it happened, remember that one, thought you did. I can't wait until the next big accident due to road conditions and it's all a matter of time. Hopefully it won't involve the family of some of these posters on here. These roads were not made to last forever. We live in Northern Illinois and have harsh weather. This past winter took a major hit to most of them and they're only going to get worse. We'll either spend the money now or will spend 3x's the amount later, hhmmm now there's something to ponder...... Want to stop spending and cut cost, start with the politicians pensions.... that will never happen. No I'd rather have the half ass roads that they have in the south and they have no winters to speak of....... Ladies you're spot on, it's the middle class that's keeping us a float and it's not looking good one damn bit! But hey we're saving money, Baahaaaaaaaa!
The Anderson Campaign is kicking off a district-wide town hall tour that will run throughout the campaign season. Kick off is at the Woodstock Public Library on May 22.
Sandy May 13, 2014 at 06:09 pm
Great idea. You don't see too many candidates doing real town halls these days. Do you think Mr.Read More Hultgren will do the same thing? I doubt it.

There is *no* giving nor favortism to any party in this initative. You can confirm by reading theRead More amendment available on the website. Click on the Our Amendment graphic on the bottom-right of the page to view it. http://independentmaps.org
Tony Pedretti March 25, 2014 at 03:39 pm
Neither the amendment nor the Independent Redistricting Commission it creates changes how voters inRead More a given area favor a party. The point of the amendment is our vote and its effect are not tainted.

Reboot Illinois touches on related topics in an article 'Redistricting and democracy: a fight forRead More fairness and representation' here... http://politics.rebootillinois.com/2014/02/27/editors-picks/tara-garcia-mathewson/redistricting-democracy-fight-fairness-representation/892/

A little off topic. This is interesting. Go to the poll at the beginning of the article in the greenRead More field right click, hit settings, then click the second box on the bottom, them tell me what you think of that?

"Phaedrus Pirsig March 29, 2014 at 08:51 AM Ayar, you do know every time you give yourself aRead More thumbs up it shows in every one else's news feed as a different color right?....Just giving you a heads up." - Phaedrus, thank you for confirming my previous posts. I was doing that to actually confirm that I POSTED. My posts are getting deleted in a pretty steady manner. There was nothing in them that warranted deletion, other than links to valid news sources such as the sun times, guardian, huffington post, etc. who "culls" posts to fit their own dogma, dude ?

Hmmm 25 years ago when Matune while in College bounced a check to the Pizza Guy when a check heRead More deposited bounced leaving insufficient funds. He graduated and left the state thinking it was resolved by the bank and the court issued an arrest warrant for failure to appear. Investigation? It is inconsequential. He also was involved in a college fraternity prank the dorm did not think was funny and called the police, oh geez how criminal no-one knows anyone in a fraternity, which of course some of the college fraternity pranks are "criminal", but also pretty funny. You try to put the Principal's Volkswagon Bug on the roof of the school, and Engineering Major in the making. I would trust him more with my children than some busy body parent talking on their cell phone in the pick up Lane at the Downers Junior High! :>

this crack head will not win. sandy this guy is for obama care. thats all you need to know. if youRead More like your plan you can keep it. they all lie.(democRATS)
JT March 15, 2014 at 08:19 am
Sandy, to repeatedly vote for the same "Tax and Spend" Democrats is stupidity at theRead More highest level. History and voting records do not go away, no matter how you spin it. Brainwashing has taken place in this country, and I feel sorry for those who do not seek the truth. There are people such as yourself, who will promote the nonsense that is taking place without regard to their own future. They are called sheeple, and as history has shown, after their use, they were casually tossed aside.
Dennis Anderson is a Democratic Candidate for U.S. Congress in District 14.  Remember to cast your vote on March 18th.
Hector March 3, 2014 at 04:41 pm
Matt, founded on is not the same as those morals being the law of the land. The founding fathersRead More made sure that didn't happen. There is no official religion in this country, no matter how you and Gerard say there is. BTW, the conversation turned when Gerard said th need to bring back the original morals. That won't happen, so go ahead and keep voting for the empty suit, family values candidates. Even if elected, they can't legislate morals.

Unfortunately for you, Gerry, your favorite subject (the U.S. Constitution) is also your weakest.Read More You're like a little boy who wants to be an astronaut, but he keeps bringing home D's in science on his report card.
