Hometown's own Richard L. Grabowski (R) is stepping up to the plate for ordinary citizens and taxpayers in our Southland communities. He's running on the Republican ticket in the March 20th Primary for Illinois's 3rd Congressional District seat, currently held by Dan Lipinski (D).
Rich is a common sense constitutional conservative with traditional family values. He's pro-life, pro-family, pro-business, pro-growth and pro-second amendment. He respects our God given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. He's concerned with preserving our freedoms, our traditional American way of life, defending the United States Constitution, reducing the size, role and scope of big government in our lives, businesses and communities, lowering taxes, reducing spending, balancing the federal budget, protecting our USA borders, enforcing and toughening our existing immigration laws currently on the books, and having something left of our country to pass on to our future generations. Philosophically, socially and fiscally, Rich chooses to be a conservative Republican.
With the new redistricting map having been drawn and finalized in late December of 2011, and with increasingly irresponsible leadership at the state and federal levels, Republicans in our Southland 3rd Congressional District have greater opportunities than ever this year. With the new boundaries stretching from Bridgeport in Chicago all the way out to Crest Hill near Joliet, the 3rd CD has nearly doubled the size of its southwest suburban footprint. Losing some it's northern boundaries, it now encompasses the cities of Orland Hills, Romeoville, Lockport, Lemont, Homer Glen, Fairmont, and parts of Orland Park, Tinley Park, New Lenox and Joliet.
Rich is the only candidate that actually lives in the southwest suburbs, running in this deeply drawn, new bordered, mostly southwest suburban 3rd district. Grabowski doesn't go unchallenged though. He has gained two opponents in the Republican primary, that being Art Jones of west suburban Lyons, and Jim Falvey of west suburban Western Springs, both reside near the northern border of the district.
"To put this race in perspective", Rich says, once he's in the general election, "Hi I'm David, I'm running against Goliath, and I need to borrow your slingshot on election day. The question is, do you have the stones to help make it happen?"
Make a committment to be an educated voter in 2012. What's at stake? The FATE of our United States Constitution, the HEART and SOUL of America, the SPIRIT of our traditional American way of life, and the PROMISE... of our children's and our children's children's future freedoms, will all depend on the level headed, commonsensical and coherant, fiscal managing and policy making leadership decisions that YOU will make, for OUR future and for OUR future generations, in the 2012 elections.
