Candidate Statement

I’m Tommy Hanson.

I’m running for the 5th Congressional District.

That’s right: I’m back!!!!

In 2018 I warned you that taxes were going up.

Fees were going up.

Everything is getting more expensive.

You won because you didn’t listen.

So here’s where we are:

From bondage to spiritual faith,

From spiritual faith to great courage,

From courage to liberty,

From liberty to abundance,

From abundance to selfishness,

From selfishness to complacency,

From complacency to apathy,

From apathy to dependency,

From dependency back again to bondage.

Here we go, again:

Chicago and the state of Illinois are broke!

I don’t know what it is you don’t understand?

There are robberies, stabbings, flash gangs in your neighborhood. It’s getting even more dangerous than before!

Buildings being built - everywhere, for no one, because everyone is leaving.

Many of these buildings will never be finished.

Michigan Avenue is becoming a ghost town.

Residential real estate prices plummeting because taxes are soaring.

Quite frankly, I’m tired of this.

And, so are you!!!

And guess what?

Other cities and states are doing better -- far better than we are!!!

Something here isn’t working and pretty soon it will be you.

Check the box when you vote – I’m Tommy Hanson.
