Monday night’s (Oct. 18) forum featuring Republican Randy Hultgren and Congressman Bill Foster was a long-overdue chance for the constituents of the 14th Congressional District to finally hold Bill Foster accountable for his disappointing record in Congress.
He hasn’t voted the way we’d like him to, and without ever having attended a large candidate forum, we are not surprised that people booed both his record and negative campaigning tactics. We are voting for the only candidate that has made a commitment to attend town hall meetings and listen to his constituents, Randy Hultgren.

After much frustration with the state of the economy and the nation, we are exercising our Constitutional and God-given rights to help elect Randy Hultgren to the U.S. Congress.Â
Randyâ€™s great leadership skills as an Illinois state Senator and common-sense approach are what are sorely lacking in many of our current office holders. Case in point: Bill Foster.Â
Mr. Foster has voted for every spending bill in Congress. He has been touted as being non-partisan by voting â€œNoâ€ for Cap and Trade (Washington gimmickry that will raise taxes on everything). Itâ€™s obvious the real story is that the Democrats already had the 219 votes they needed, so they gave Foster a pass.Â Above all, Foster has been in lock-step with the liberal Speaker on nearly 93 percent of votes in Congress.Â
On the other hand, Randy Hultgren is the one candidate who will fight for real insurance reform, just as he will fight for lower taxes to get our economy working againâ€”his record in the Illinois Senate speaks for itself.Â
We cannot stress enough the importance of getting it right this time. Elect a true representative of the peopleâ€”one who will be there when the town hall convenes.
Elect Randy Hultgren to Congress from the 14th District.
