Which Candidate Can Reform Springfield?‏

From the campaign to elect Ron Sandack (81st House District)…

Today is Election Day, and you will have an important choice to make: will you send a bold reformer to Springfield to finally clean up the mess?

Elections can bring out the best and worst of people. While I have outlined my bold plan to reform Springfield through my Five to Revive Illinois plan, my opponent refused to complete candidate questionnaires and attend endorsement interviews and is instead running a negative smear campaign. Throughout she has offered no original ideas for our State’s numerous fiscal ailments. Instead of a platform based on substance, my opponent merely issues attack mailers and mean-spirited robo-calls. Which candidate do you want representing you in Springfield?

Perhaps then it makes sense to hear from sources other than the candidates. Here are but a few:

Adam Andrzejewski, For the Good of Illinois PAC— “I support Ron Sandack for his extremely strong leadership on four key issues: i) pension reform and the elimination of legislative pensions; ii) End of corporate giveaways. He was only one of four senators to vote against the Sears/CME bill; iii) Term limits. He took action in Downers Grove on the issue and spearheads the issue in Springfield; and iv) Elimination of unnecessary or redundant units of government.”

The Chicago Tribune — “Few public officials walk the walk like Republican Sen. Ron Sandack, of Downers Grove. Appointed in 2010, he has declined state pension and health care benefits and refused to participate in the scandal-ridden legislative scholarship program. He gets high marks for his work ethic — he’s famous for actually reading the bills — and he’s not afraid to take the heat for an unpopular vote. Mapped into the same district as Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno, he decided to run for the House instead. He’s endorsed over Deborah Boyle, a registered nurse and school board member from Downers Grove.”

The Daily Herald–“Our choice is easy: state Sen. Ron Sandack. We like Sandack’s ideas on governmental reform. He introduced a resolution calling for term limits on state legislators — he’ll abide by his idea of a 10-year limit regardless of whether it ever gets approved — and he has turned down both the pension for state legislators and health care benefits, saying the job is part-time and benefits should not be part of the deal. His priorities are creating jobs, reforming the pension systems and restructuring the budget with at least a 10 percent spending cut across the board.
On Tuesday, March 20th, you will have a chance to vote for a bold, independent reformer who is unashamed of his conservative principles. Please vote for me, Ron Sandack, so that together we can reform Springfield.
