    Dem candidate for IL-16 meets voters in Pontiac

    Sara Dady told a crowd of about 40 people gathered in downtown Pontiac Tuesday evening that she wasn’t afraid to meet with them in public. One could reasonably read that as a dig at Adam Kinzinger, the U.S. Representative of Illinois’s 16th congressional district who Dady’s looking to unseat in the November general election; the incumbent has faced criticism for limiting appearances in town halls and other public forums.  Should she be elected, Dady vowed to distinguish herself not only in availability to constituents, but would fight for their best interests, advocating universal healthcare and major wage hikes.

    OUR VIEW: Cheers to those pushing for 16th District candidate forum

    THUMBS UP TO… pressing the issue. Members of Action for a Better Tomorrow Sauk Valley, a political advocacy group, traveled from Dixon to Ottawa last week to visit the district office of U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, the Channahon Republican seeking re-election against a challenge from Rockford Democrat Sara Dady. The group brought with it more than 700 signatures endorsing a letter inviting Kinzinger and Dady to take part in a community forum at 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 30, at the Post House Community Center in Dixon. It would be only the second joint public appearance for the candidates following a mid-May on-air debate at Ottawa radio station WCMY-AM.
