SUNDAY NEWS CONFERENCE-BELVIDERE: Andy Martin promises a “Rockford (Ill.) Rail Revolution”

January 31, 2010

“Illinois Tough” U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin will charge at a Sunday (today) Belvidere news conference that the Rockford area would not have been ignored for federal stimulus funding if he had been in Washington. “The Boone-Winnebago-Stephenson region needs a Washington fighter, not another Washington insider,” Martin says. “My principal opponent Mark Kirk was said by the Chicago Sun-Times today (Sunday) to be hiding in a ‘bunker.’ If Kirk is hiding now, what will he be like after he is elected? My political activism spearheaded the development of I-39,” Martin notes. “Boone-Winnebago-Stephenson Counties need a vigorous advocate, not losers of the Quinn-Durbin variety. If Durbin can’t deliver for Illinois with his stooge in the White House, what is he going to do when Republicans take over in November?” Martin will state. Martin will also speak to Boone County Republicans at a Lincoln Day Luncheon. Martin promises to “Deliver for Downstate”

BELVIDERE NEWS CONFERENCE: Sunday January 31st

“Illinois Tough” U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin says passenger rail should run through Belvidere, not Genoa

Martin says that Governor Quinn’s Saturday promises were a response to the embarrassing loss of federal funds.

Martin says that although both parties have failed Boone-Winnebago-Stephenson, he will fight for the area in Washington

Martin is credited by the Chicago Tribune with spearheading the creation of I-39 in the 1970’s

ANNOUNCEMENT OF SUNDAY NEWS CONFERENCE IN BELVIDERE

Andy Martin says Durbin and Quinn have failed to deliver for Boone-Winnebago-Stephenson Counties

Martin says that high-speed rail, not Toonerville Trolleys to Dubuque, should be the first priority

Martin says high-speed rail would tie Boone-Winnebago-Stephenson Counties to O’Hare and the Chicago area, creating a local economic boom

Andy promises to “Deliver for Downstate”

MARTIN HAS THE ONLY CAMPAIGN WEB SITE WITH A SPECIAL LINK SUPPORTING HIGH-SPEED PASSENGER TRAIN SERVICE

(CHICAGO)(January 31, 2010) “Illinois Tough” Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin will hold a Belvidere (Boone County) news conference Sunday, January 31st to promise that he will lead a “Rockford Rail Revolution” when he becomes United States Senator. Martin says that Boone-Winnebago-Stephenson leaders have failed abysmally.

At his news conference Martin will brandish “studies” from as long as ten years ago to show the complete impotence of local representatives of both parties to move forward with rail service.

“Boone-Winnebago-Stephenson Counties have lacked an effective voice in the U. S. Senate. Dick Durbin has proven to be totally ineffective, even with his pet rock in the White House,” Martin says. “Pat Quinn? Don’t ask. If I had been in Washington the Boone-Winnebago-Stephenson area would not have been shut out of stimulus funding and high-speed rail cash. No one is going to run over me.

“I favor a ‘Manhattan Project’-style simultaneous design and build high-speed rail program to get America moving and get Illinois ‘on the right track, not the side track.’ Trains in staid Great Britain already go 200 miles an hour. Why should Americans be satisfied with less than half that, a decade from now?

“Governor Quinn’s face-saving promise Saturday to deliver Illinois capital funds for rail service is only a desperate, last-minute pre-primary device to stave off the embarrassment of having failed to deliver for Illinois.

“I believe that high-speed rail can only come through Belvidere to Rockford and Freeport. We want to connect an existing corridor of economic activity that can benefit from high-speed connections to the O’Hare and Chicago economies. We need to integrate Rockford Airport into the Chicago regional economy. What is in Genoa?

“Three decades ago I spearheaded the effort to upgrade Highway 51 into an Interstate highway. I have proven I can produce results. Illinois is falling further and behind other states. Dick Durbin is an effective stooge for labor racketeers and other special interests. But he has failed to deliver for ordinary Illinoisans. I will.

“I have the only campaign website [www.AndyforUSSenator.com] with a separate web page showcasing my commitment to high-speed train service [www.IllinoisHighSpeedTrains.com].

“In the Republican primary I am ‘primarily’ running against Mark Kirk, a man who doesn’t even know where ‘downstate’ is. The Chicago Sun-Times reports today that Kirk is hiding in a ‘bunker’ somewhere, maybe to avoid my ‘Bunker Busters.’

“I am not going to Washington to be an insider. I am going to represent the people of Illinois. Kirk can’t deliver his own presence in Boone-Winnebago-Stephenson. How is he going to deliver for the struggling economy of this region?

“High-speed rail. High-speed rail. High-speed rail. This region needs access to the national economy. We need to make Rockford Airport part of the national economy, not a leftover stopover. I will deliver that connection as U. S. Senator. I-39 shows I will ‘Deliver for Downstate.’ Has any Republican shown they can do better?

“We need hard-hitting bi-partisan competition in Washington, not a one—party government. I am the only candidate in either party with a long track record of fighting for ordinary citizens.”

Martin is making his last stop in the area before Tuesday’s primary.

All Aboard! Andy Martin whistle-stops across Illinois

January 28, 2010

U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin will whistle-stop across eastern and central Illinois Thursday, January 28th campaigning in Chicago, Kankakee, Champaign, Mattoon and Effingham for his plan to build a “21st Century” high-speed passenger rail network. Martin will ridicule Barack Obama’s “19th Century” proposal to marginally increase train speeds. Martin says Obama’s timidity will never create jobs or stimulate the economy. Martin favors a “Manhattan Project”-style campaign to “design and build” new high-speed rail networks on an emergency basis. “We must have a ‘fierce urgency of now’ to build major public improvements (where have we heard that phrase before?),” Martin says, “not a lackadaisical plan to spend billions on worthless incremental improvements.” Martin favors competitive bidding and private sector control of the new “land grant” program to rebuild America’s transportation network. Warren Buffet: are you listening? Martin will also slap his opponents Mark Kirk and Patrick Hughes for being political frauds.

U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin slams Obama’s “Toonerville trolley” plan for “hy-speed’ trains. Martin backs a 21st century high-speed rail plan for Illinois and the Midwest

ANNOUNCEMENT OF THURSDAY NEWS CONFERENCES IN CHICAGO, KANKAKEE, CHAMPAIGN, MATTOON AND EFFINGHAM

Andy Martin says Illinois needs a “21st Century” high-speed rail system, not Barack Obama’s “19th century” improvements

Martin calls for a “Manhattan Project”-style emergency building program

Martin renews his charges that Mark Kirk and Patrick Hughes are political frauds

(CHICAGO)(January 28, 2010) Republican U. S. Senate candidate and insurgent “Internet Powerhouse” Andy Martin will hold a series of news conferences across eastern and central Illinois to slam Barack Obama for a “hy-speed” rail proposal that only marginally increases train speeds.

“Obama is proposing improvements to a 19th century system,” Martin says. “We need a ‘Manhattan project’-style program to build a 21st century high-speed rail network in Illinois and parts of the Midwest.

“A 21st century high-speed rail plan would create hundreds of thousands of jobs. If we proceed on an emergency basis with a simultaneous ‘design and build’ approach, we can start building within months.

“What does high-quality high-speed rail cost in the long run? Zero. The added value to our economy, the added real estate values in communities along the high-speed rail network would pay for the system.

“Property in Kankakee would skyrocket if there was a high-speed train to the loop in thirty minutes. Champaign? One hour. People could commute from Champaign to Chicago. Mattoon and Effingham? One and a half hours. Carbondale? Two and a half hours. By comparison, Obama’s plan to spend billions on worthless improvements to a broken system would add little value to the economy. It’s typical Barry Obama: too little, too late, too timid. Thank God this guy is not Commander-in-Chief.

“High speed rail would tie this state and region together. People could live in their homes and commute to central cities. Our children would no longer have to move to the coasts to find excitement and economic opportunity.

“America’s private enterprise built the ‘war machine’ that saved the world in World War II. Private enterprise can save America in 2010 if we will only have the courage to think big thoughts and invest in our economic future,” Martin says. “This is not a Republican thing or a Democratic thing. This is an American thing.” Martin holds an Economics degree from the University of Illinois.

Martin says all of his opponents in both parties lack the vision and courage to propose major infrastructure investments.

Martin will also slam Mark Kirk and Patrick Hughes as political pretenders who are lying to the people of Illinois.

Martin will attend the Effingham County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner Thursday evening at the Effingham Knights of Columbus Hall.

Media are welcome to join our trip transportation.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEWS CONFERENCES IN ROCKFORD AND LAKE FOREST

Andy Martin will hold a Rockford news conference today and then address a meeting of Winnebago County Republicans

Martin, who is recognized as the “Father of Interstate-39,” will promise to connect Rockford to high-speed rail links and upgrade Rockford Airport

In Lake Forest, Martin will challenge WLS-AM’s “Don and Roma” to stop asking Mark Kirk softball questions on their program.

(ROCKFORD, IL)(January 19, 2010) “Illinois Tough” Republican U. S. Senate candidate and insurgent “Internet Powerhouse” Andy Martin will hold a Rockford news conference today Tuesday, January 19th to hammer away at the need for a new high-speed rail system connecting Rockford to Chicago. Martin will then speak to a meeting of Winnebago County Republicans.

“Republicans are desperate for an alternative to the effete Mr. Kirk. Kirk has never appeared at a single public function since becoming a candidate for senator, and always insists on controlled-access locations. I have become the ‘Kirk Killer.’

“The media are pro-Kirk, and anti-Martin, but like moths drawn to a candle, they keep attacking me and focusing on my campaign. Why? I have stripped the bark off Kirk’s bogus military accomplishments as well as other unsavory aspects of his life in Congress. Nuff said. Kirk remains in seclusion.

“Tonight, on a positive note, I will renew my pledge and promise Winnebago Republicans to replicate my effort which led to the construction of Interstate 39, by building a new high-speed rail link for Rockford, and by also upgrading the Rockford Airport. I am the only candidate for U. S. Senator who is a ‘builder’ with a proven record of delivering for Winnebago County. If you don’t believe me, come to Rockford and see Interstate Highway 39 that I brought into existence,” Martin says.

MARTIN will issue a reaction comment later Tuesday to the latest embarrassments of the Hughes campaign. “Hughes may be collapsing,” Martin says, “But we are there to offer his supporters a conservative refuge. We are Illinois Tough. Hughes wasn’t. He would not even discuss or debate conservative social issues. Good riddance to Mr. Hughes.” Watch for Andy’s remarks Tuesday evening/Wednesday morning.

COMING: Martin plans an explosive new announcement at a news conference later Wednesday.

ANDY MARTIN BRINGS HIS SURGING CAMPAIGN FOR U. S. SENATOR TO THE PEORIA REGION

MARTIN WILL HOLD A DOWNTOWN PEORIA “MEET AND GREET” THURSDAY FOR AREA REPUBLICANS WISHING TO MEET THE CANDIDATE

MARTIN PLANS TO HOLD A TOWN HALL MEETING TO PRESENT HIS PLANS FOR CONNECTING PEORIA TO CHICAGO AND ST. LOUIS WITH HIGH-SPEED RAIL SERVICE

MARTIN SALUTES PEORIA-AREA PATRIOTS FOR REMEMBERING CONSTITUTION DAY, A DAY MARTIN CALLS A “FORGOTTEN HOLIDAY”

(CHICAGO)(September 16, 2009) Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin brings his surging senate campaign to the Peoria-area Thursday with a series of three events:

First, Martin will conduct a “Meet and Greet” for Republicans who want to meet the senate candidate, at the Mark Twain Hotel in downtown Peoria from 7:00 A.M. to 8:30 A.M.

All Republicans are invited!

Second, Andy will hold a Town Hall meeting on Peoria’s future transportation needs. He supports expedited links between the Peoria, Chicago and St. Louis metropolitan areas. Details on the location of the town meeting will be provided later today.

Finally, Martin will march in the Central Illinois Tea Party Patriots procession from the U. S. Courthouse to the Peoria County Courthouse, starting at 11:00 A.M.

“I can’t commend central Illinois patriots enough for remembering Constitution Day,” Martin said Tuesday, September 15th. “Constitution Day is a forgotten holiday in American history but it was one of the most significant events in our republic. On September 17, 1787, American patriots signed the new Constitution and created a nation governed by limited federal powers, and an explicit separation of powers.

“We know the founders did a good job, because we have only had to amend the Constitution a handful of times over the ensuing centuries.

“Of course we still have a healthy debate about what the constitution means. That’s all to the good. Ultimately our Constitution is both an enabler and protector of our ‘inalienable rights’ mentioned in the Declaration of Independence.

“Often we mistakenly think only of judges as protectors of the Constitution. But the Constitution clearly vests all three branches of government with a role in interpreting and implementing the document. Judges play a critical role, but they do not play the only role. U. S. Senators also have work to do, ensuring that our modern laws are faithful to the Constitution,” Martin said

Martin will issue media availability updates and locations for his Town Hall meeting later Wednesday, September 18th.

Martin will arrive in Peoria Wednesday evening to prepare for Thursday’s events.

“In 2008, I carried or almost carried forty counties, as well as receiving the votes of nearly a quarter of a million Illinois Republicans. My voters want to build on that base, and rebuild the Illinois Republican Party,” Martin said. “I have an unblemished forty-year career of fighting political corruption in this state, and fighting crooks in both parties. Every Illinoisan wants an honest U. S. Senator. My record of accomplishments stands head and shoulders above that of any of my competitors for the nomination.” See http://www.AndyforUSSenator.com and http://www.AndyMartin.com.
