Letter: Chris Lauzen leads in word and deed

By on January 14, 2010

Thomas Jefferson wrote: “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government … it is their Right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”

Illinois politics is in a state of upheaval. It is time to clean up this mess.

Senator Chris Lauzen is one of the very few we can trust with his extensive education and past and proven experience. My father taught me to judge people not by what they say—rather judge them by what they do. Chris Lauzen’s words match his actions, and that is why we need to re-elect such a leader.
