On Thursday we attended a luncheon hosted by Adam Andrzejewski’s Good for Illinois organization in honor of former Poland President and Nobel Prize recipient Lech Walesa. What an amazing international figure. His speech was riveting. Bill Brady also gave a great speech. Governor Brady will be an international leader…bridging the international marketplace with Illinois companies.
We then headed to the Tea Party Express event. A large crowd was gathered outside to hear from speakers. My hands were freezing holding the microphone but the electric atmosphere was exciting.
I stopped by the Asian American Coalition meeting. I want to thank my good friend Prem Lalvani for his tireless efforts for the Asian American community. We are blessed by his leadership.
The final event was at the Oak Park/ River Forest rally. Tom Cronin leads a great group of Republicans. It was awesome to see so many Republicans in Oak Park. Thank you Carol Donovan, our State Central Committeeman for the area for inviting me. Congressman Roskam gave the keynote address…followed by myself and then by our great friend and mentor Dan Rutherford. Cook County Commissioner and Mayor of Elmwood Park Pete Silvestri also gave fine remarks. It was a good time at the beautiful Oak Park Country Club.
