I have been working with Richard Greene, formerly of “Hollywood Clout” on WCPT, Chicago Progressive Talk Radio, to put together a website that identifies candidates who support clean energy independence for the United States.
Feel free to go to the site, EnergyIndependentCongress.us, to find out more.
But here are our local Illinois congressional candidates who, according to the site, will do their best to establish our energy independence:
U.S. House of Representatives:
- 7th District – Danny Davis
- 8th District -Melissa Bean
- 11th District - Debbie Halvorson
- 14th District – Bill Foster
- 17th District – Phil Hare
- Jesse Jackson, Jr.
- Dan Lipinski
- Mike Quigley
- Jan Shakowsky
- Dan Seals
Special Mention: 6th District - Benjamin Lowe — Our local Congressional candidate did not get endorsed on the site, due to time-constraints. However, having perused his book wherein he espouses environmental stewardship based on Judeo-Christian principles, I believe he has the wherewithal to help bring about energy independence. We only need to support and vote for him.
