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 www.AndyforUSSenator.com and www.AndyMartin.com.
