Statement from Richard Grabowski:
If elected to Congress, I will focus on preserving our freedoms, our traditional American way of life, defending our United States Constitution, reducing the size, scope and role of government in our private 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. Fiscally, socially and constitutionally, I choose to be a conservative Republican.
If elected, I will be an advocate for the voice of the ordinary citizen, taxpayer and business of our district. I will fight for common sense legislation aimed at making our government limited and less intrusive in our lives, our businesses and our communities. I will focus on welcoming and promoting new business development in our state again by strengthening and solidifying the conditions for economic growth, bringing businesses and real jobs back to Illinois for good! I am committed to helping bring to our country and state the real reforms and honest government we deserve.
