Candidate Statement

As I knock on voters’ doors, the same conversation comes up over and over – what can be done about the insurmountable issues we are facing? Many have faced the loss of a loved one, their jobs, most of us have lost friends over the past few years and others have seen everything they worked so hard for slip from their hands because of the unthinkable regional government policies imposed since 2020. These are not normal times we are living in. 

Yet, as we enter another election cycle, the playbook is on repeat. We have a congressional candidate, yet again, doing research to run for Mayor of Chicago. Ultimately the 5th Congressional seat will be abandoned and your vote, once again, will not have mattered, when that person wins the mayoral election and someone else is shoved in to ‘fill the spot’ indefinitely. But wait, maybe he will go ahead and run for congress just to make sure he has a job in case he loses for mayor. All at your expense. When is enough, enough?

We are facing inflation like none many have seen in their lifetime. Illinois continues to be the number one exit state in America. You have watched countless friends, family, neighbors and co‐workers pack up and leave, heading to states that have lower taxes, that are free from unreasonable political control and have a much more reasonable political climate.

It’s time to show Illinois we aren’t going to stand for the Marxist playbook. We demand to be free, to be able to educate our children in public schools free from Critical Race Theory and Racial Justice theories, to not be over burdened by taxes and bad fiscal management, and to appreciate and be protected by law enforcement who risk their lives daily on our behalf. 

I pledge to bring Red state politics to Illinois. The states you have dreamed of living in like Florida, Texas and Tennessee, to Illinois. Imagine loving where you live again, it’s possible.

Vote Tommy Hanson 5th Congressional District Illinois.
