Rockford Register Star: Letter: Support Adam Kinzinger for Congress
Letter to the Editor by Cmdr. Allen Murphy, U.S. Navy, retired, of Rockford, IL.
You could say I’m your average, very moderate Republican. I favor lower taxes, helping small business owners, jobs for Americans, easing unneeded government regulations and a more efficient government. As one who voted for Donald Trump, I’m for shaking up the system from time to time. I’m also willing to hear out any candidate, regardless of party, on their ideas and positions.
This November, two candidates will be vying to represent us in the House of Representatives, in the Illinois 16th district. One of them is incumbent Congressman Adam Kinzinger.
Congressman Kinzinger is more conservative than I am — but I’m impressed with his pragmatism and his focus on the long game, knowing that as long as you’re moving the ball down the field you’ll be moving towards you’re goal of scoring. Adam Kinzinger has shown that he supports small business, lower taxes, small government and unleashing American energy resources. I served as a naval aviator on active duty for over two decades and respect (most importantly) Kinzinger’s service to our country and his shared goal with the president to rebuild our military and protect our national security.
The other candidate Sara Dady is an immigration attorney — aside from that, after reviewing her web site. Dadys’ ideas appear to be in lockstep with the same failed policies of Nancy Pelosi that are driving citizens from Illinois. More government, higher taxes, higher utility bills through the forced use of the most expensive energy sources, and anti- small business regulations. Dady even wants the Affordable Care Act replaced with a form of socialized health care. Dadys’ positions on national defense, veterans and foreign affairs are absent. If there is really something there, I am still willing to listen. For now, I literally cannot afford to support Dady, the entire world population and policies that always lead to higher taxes.
This November I will be voting for and urge others to vote for Adam Kinzinger for congress. Congressman Kinzinger is someone who cares about this country, state and puts the needs of the citizens of the 16th District of Illinois first.
