A press release from the Huntley Area Tea Party:
HUNTLEY AREA TEA PARTY welcomes ADAM ANDRZEJEWSKI
“Transparency, Exposure, and the squeezing out of Corruptive Practices”
A national leader in bringing transparency to government spending, Adam Andrzejewski (Angie-f-ski), born in Herscher, IL. comes from a hardworking family farm community; he is an NIU graduate, successful businessman, and a respected government watchdog.
In 2010, Adam ran for Governor of Illinois in the Republican primary. Despite a close loss on Election Day, Adam founded OpenTheBooks.com to help fulfill his campaign pledge; he promised to post “every dime online in real time.”
Today, OpenTheBooks.com contains over 300 million lines of government spending with the goal of acquiring 1 billion lines within the year. Currently posted is nearly all disclosed federal checkbook vendor spending since 2000.
Recently Adam filed a lawsuit vs. Republican Comptroller Judy Baar-Topinka to successfully force open the last 17 years of line-by-line State of Illinois checkbook spending. In 2013, the Edgar County Watchdogs & allies are credited with firings/resignations of 38 public officials or elected officials from their positions.
This is a special opportunity to hear about and look at our Illinois with the transparent vision Adam has in his focus on a life of public service.
