In case you missed it, LeAlan Jones sat down with Fox 32 News’ Mike Flannery.
A Special Candidate for A Special Election
Today, you have the opportunity to decide: Is the status quo good enough? Can you continue to live with the threat of daily violence, the lack of jobs, the shuttering schools, the lack of quality health care, the proliferation of pollution? As different as these problems might sound, they are all related to a culture of do-nothing politics, and We The People deserve better.
For years, the Second Congressional District, like much of Chicago and Cook County, has been represented by corrupt, self-serving politicians — and our community has suffered. And while they have failed miserably in the past, the Democratic Party’s agenda in this election is clear: More of the same.
I decided to run for Congress because I realized that, in order to put an end to a cycle that has dragged us down, each of us needs to stand up and demand something better. That’s why I joined the Green Party, because it represents all the ideas that will make us whole again.
As your congressman, I will fight for a better life across the Second District, by demanding green jobs, upgraded infrastructure, and better health care. I will also fight to the property rights of our district’s farmers by stopping the proposed Peotone Airport and the urban sprawl that goes along with it. And I will fight against budget cuts that threaten our schools and the future of our children.
Please go out and vote on Tuesday, April 9 — and vote for new leader who is ready to get to work.
Mr. LeAlan M. Jones
CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS
2nd District of Illinois
