My campaign is piercing through decades of no action for this district that have stunted the forward progress for the residents of the former district borders. Just look at the Villages of Harvey, Dixmoor, Phoenix, Robbins, Riverdale to name just a few. The Chicago Southeast-side is left abandon and left to fend for itself which is why I am running to bring this Jackson-style of governing to a screeching halt! So I know the newly added counties of Will & Kankakee will feel relief with Marcus Lewis at the helm not only will receive the Love, Care, Concern & Resources they are due but the entire district! I hope the residents and voters of the entire district will come to believe that the era of Jesse Jackson Jr. will come to an end on Nov. 6th, 2012 because they voted for Marcus Lewis in mass. I am here to help and will put all of my efforts with the backing of the U.S. Government behind rebuilding the areas hardest hit first because the need is so great. But every area will get the focused attention they deserve. So stand with me now 2nd District. We must roll up our sleeves and sit down together and get to work and put in action plans that you will see positive steps that we mean business on picking up ourselves and getting back our identity. We matter and I am going to show the state and country that the 2nd District is a player in the larger scheme of things positive.

Here is the Catholic Bishops are doing the same thing as Paster Singleton. So if you don't believe it is wide spread problem of 501(c)3 violations is being filed against them as well. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/02/us-bishops-campaigning-romney_n_2067221.html?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000009&utm_hp_ref=fb&src=sp&comm_ref=false#sb=314016,b=facebook

This behavior may cause President Obama to lose the election. That is why this electioneering is lethal. Pastors need to stay in their lane.

This is why Peotone will never be built. Gary Airport has 2 flights a week and is locked up the rest of the time. Poor use of taxpayer funds. http://www.nbcchicago.com/investigations/unit-5-chicago-plan-truth-gary-chicago-airport-taxpayer-subsidy-175902941.html

Now Lord God, I give this campaign to you. Thank you for this opportunity you have permitted and I ask that as I Bless Your Holy Name and I Lift You Up Above The Earth, Draw All Voters unto me so I may help someone. In Jesus' Name.

Let us know how Jesus performs for you tomorrow!

The Lord has already done excellently. He got me this far , known to those that knew me not. On the ballot for you to choose or not to choose. He gOt me in a congressional race at this particular time with JJJ the way he is. And The Lord Jesus did it all for about $ 3500.00 and I am not in debt. I have the opportunity to go to congress for $3500.00. I think He has done wonderful. Every thing else is gravy to help you and others that to have a strong voice you didn't have before my candidacy. Yes God has done more than I could have ever dreamed. So all I can do is praise Him! Thank you Lord Jesus!
