This past week, a group of LaSalle and Grundy county residents held the Illinois 16th District Community Forum. Sara Dady and Adam Kinzinger were invited and both agreed to participate.

As you can imagine, these residents worked hard and spent a lot of money to put on this event. Approximately, 200 people showed up that evening to listen to what Sara Dady and Adam Kinzinger had to say. Well, Kinzinger never showed up. That’s right, he was invited, did not show up to the event, and no one called to say he would not be there. No one at his office knew where he was or what he was doing.

Sara Dady was there, spoke and took questions from the audience like the professional she is.
In the past, I have written about Kinzinger not wanting to face voters but not showing up for a planned event is the worst. People living in the 16th Congressional District deserve better than a representative who ignores us, accepts money from special interest groups and then votes in their best interests, not ours. You can bet that voters will remember Kinzinger’s absence and lack of caring this November.
