Disappointed in state Rep. Adam Kinzinger’s representation

To the Editor,

I am profoundly disappointed in the way Adam Kinzinger has represented us. While I am not yet old enough to vote, I can see that he is more accountable to his party than his own constituents. 

Kinzinger consistently neglects the needs of the working class with abysmal ratings from the AFL-CIO, AFSCME, and SEIU. As a daughter of two union workers, this directly affects my family. He is also simply absent: he has not held a public town hall in over three years, rarely shows up to events to support the district, and instead spends his time glad-handing donors in Washington. 

Dani Brzozowski is the candidate fighting for us. With strong ties to labor throughout the district, she will put their needs front and center, and give workers adequate representation. She has held multiple open, free, and accessible town halls throughout the district and online, and is open to perspectives that run the political spectrum. Brzozowski is a candidate who will work for the people, regardless of political affiliation, and fight for a good policy idea - no matter where, or who, it comes from. Adam Kinzinger works for his own self-interest. “Former Congressman” is a good title for him - he will continue to book plenty of TV interviews that way, while we have a representative looking out for her district.
