To the Editor:
I am writing today to get the word out about and to share my personal endorsement of a true progressive candidate who is running to represent the people of the Illinois 14th Congressional District.
As someone who was fortunate enough to be a Bernie/Our Revolution-endorsed candidate myself, and as someone who ran on a broad progressive ticket alongside Mr. Jim Walz in the 2016 elections in McHenry County, I would like to announce my personal endorsement of Mr. Walz.
I’ve known Jim now for a couple of years. He’s a true progressive. His values are directly in line with the people’s platform as well as being in line with the needs of the people of the 14th Congressional District (as expressed so publicly by so many voters in the 14th district over the last few years).
Jim Walz is one of the most honest, straightforward people I have met – not just in politics, but in my life. Jim is a genuinely kind, caring person with an incredible passion to serve the people of the Illinois 14th district.
I believe that with the name recognition Mr. Walz has accrued since his initial run for office, he is the only viable candidate. Jim believes in Medicare for all, which, frankly, I have not heard from any of his fellow candidates on either side of the aisle, including the incumbent, Rep. Randy Hultgren.
I readily endorse Jim Walz both in the upcoming democratic primary this March and in the general election this November.
Mr. Walz has an incredible team behind him and is very popular with the people. Jim Walz is a truly progressive candidate. I want to see the 14th flipped and I know we all want to see Rep. Hultgren replaced with a competent and truly progressive voice of the people. Jim Walz is that.
I endorse Jim Walz as the best candidate for the 14th district. He can win this election!
