James Marter for United States Senate
My opponent, Senator Mark Kirk, gave us another reason why he is out of touch with the people of Illinois. Aside from insulting my one quarter Polish ancestry (my great-grandmother who came to America from Poznan, Poland), the Senator has managed to insult just about everyone with his remarks at a manufacturer’s group meeting. Apparently, he has never met any hard working people of other ancestries. We are a state of hard working people of all backgrounds. It is not one ethnic group that attracts manufacturers to come to Illinois. People of all races, ethnicities and cultures are valued in this state. Perhaps the senator should spend more time here so he can meet the people who keep Illinois thriving despite “high costs and corruption…”.
It is unfortunate the senator felt comfortable mocking our fellow Americans and neighbors in the southern states. They, like many of my friends and family, are all avid outdoors-men and women here in Illinois who happen to enjoy hunting a few weeks of the year in this highly regulated and taxed activity. They are the primary conservators and protectors of our natural resources in Illinois. It is evident by his numerous votes for gun restrictions that he isn’t familiar with those who like “huntin”.
Being long gone from Illinois these last 15 years inside the beltway of Washington D.C., he has become so out of touch that he’s unaware of the dash to exit the State both from the employer base and the people of Illinois leaving the state for freer pastures in record numbers. How utterly shameless was it for the senator to ask those manufacturers why they continue to operate in Illinois despite our reputation for high costs, unions and corruption as if that is acceptable to him. The people of Illinois deserve better.
