Letter: Ethan Hastert is a clear choice

By on January 28, 2010

Ethan Hastert is the best candidate for congress in the 14th District. We need to get rid of Bill Foster, and Ethan is the only one who can do it.

He has established a large organization with the means and ability to win. Ethan is a strong conservative who will fight in Washington for lower taxes, less spending, and an economic environment that will foster growth in the private sector.

Hastert has been campaigning for nine months longer than anyone else in the race. Though I was skeptical at first as to whether he could get the job done, he has convinced me he is the only one who can clean up Washington.

We have a clear choice in this election cycle: change vs. more of the same. We need the new direction that Ethan Hastert can give us.

    Ethan Hastert is not a clear choice. He has no experience in representing constituents – only representing clients in a Chicago law office. His father left this district open to democrats after leaving us in the middle of his term. The state was forced to pay out for a special election because of this. Ethan is only 31 years old. We don’t need any Chicago lawyers representing this district.

    As a novice, Ethan has zero power in Washington to get anything done. He’d just join the Republican obstructionists, do what he’s told and keep a low profile to find a comfortable niche for the next few decades. It takes years in Washington to learn the ropes and make the connections that lead to being an effective politician. If you think Ethan can single-handedly clean up Washington, you’re dreaming.
