I’m a candidate myself and have consulted for many conservative campaigns throughout North America. I’ve known several great conservative candidates well. I do not know Adam Andrzejewski personally, but I’ve come to greatly admire his campaign. One does not need to know him in order to see what a benefit he can be to Illinois and to the nation.
A third generation Illinois-born American, Adam is a 40 year old conservative who embodies the very meaning of the word. He has a strong work ethic, a clear sense on policy, a passionate belief in the best of people and a strong desire to turn his state around for the better.
Andrzejewski (pronounced Angefski) was born into a family that valued work and ethics above all else. In the late 1970s, his father ran against then Minority Leader George Ryan for Illinois House of Representatives. As a child, Adam was given regular farm work and he possessed an entrepreneurial spirit from early on. In his mid-twenties, he started a business with his younger brother than grew to employ 150 people.
Last week, Lech Walesa, the former President of Poland and renowned anti-Communist leader, made his first endorsement ever of a US political candidate. It couldn’t have gone to a more fitting man. Adam’s common sense, people first, approach to government is sorely needed in a state whose politics has brandished it as anything but “common sense” until now.
Adam is a down the line conservative who anyone should be proud to support. He’s pro-life and pro-second amendment. But in truth, anyone who cares about a better government, about electing people with business experience who understand the real world and about principled leadership, should be drawn to this campaign. Aside from all of the above, no candidate can do more for the GOP on the national level than an outsider in our midst who’s willing to champion ethical leadership in a place where you’d least expect it.
Lastly, it’s a sad commentary that I even have to address this issue, but being that the talking heads are who they are, I will address it. Some, who cannot attack anything about the man, his positions, his style or his platform (because there is nothing to attack) have instead chosen to attack Adam’s name.
I believe that their disdain for the intelligence of voters should be called to the carpet. Adam Andrzejewski is running in a state that elected a man by the name of Milorad Blagojevitch in both of the last two elections. A little over five years ago, they elected a US Senator whose middle name was Hussein and who was not as well known at the time. To those naysayers, I would ask whether only bad politicians with long names should be elected to high office. I, for one, look forward to someone named Andrzejewski cleaning house in Illinois’ capitol.
Adam Andrzejewski can do more for the GOP than almost any other candidate in the nation. A quick look at his site, www.AdamforIllinois.com, will show you as much. It goes without saying that he can and will do tremendous things for the State of Illinois. I’m proud to support him on all levels. Common sense and good governance both dictate as much.
