Manhattan, IL . . . Today Jack Lombardi, Republican Candidate for Congress in Illinois’ 16th Congressional District, pledged to join the House Freedom Caucus when elected to U.S. Congress.
“On the campaign trail I am often asked how will I serve in DC. Unlike the incumbent, I will be a voice for the people. I will be a Constitutional representative. I will not support packing the courts and will work to secure our borders. Most importantly, I will fight for term limits because we need to end the stranglehold of professional politicians. The House Freedom Caucus represents these values so I will unite with them to work to restore people’s faith in DC,” said Lombardi.
The House Freedom Caucus gives a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them. The caucus supports open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty, safety and prosperity of all Americans.
Lombardi’s story is that of an ordinary Chicagoan with exceptional zeal who broke the norm, building a better life with the resources he had at hand. Today, he is a successful businessman with vast experience in leading diverse teams to a common goal of success.
A natural entrepreneur, Lombardi earned his first money at age 8 selling soda on a neighborhood street corner. He started his first business, Lombardi Trucking, by age 22 and has never looked back. Currently, Lombardi owns Chicago’s premiere digital marketing company and runs multiple internet companies.
Born and bred on Chicago’s southwest side, Lombardi went to nearby St. Laurence High School and later attended Northwestern Business College. He is proud to be the husband of Sharon Lombardi and father of his son Jack III and daughter, Summer.
You can count on Jack to have the backbone to stand up for our shared conservative values:
Strong borders are essential
Lawfulness is an important concept for Jack in every aspect of life. That’s why he strongly opposes illegal immigration.
Life is to be protected
Jack is unapologetically pro-life and believes in protecting children from conception and beyond.
Law and order are to be respected
Jack believes in and supports law enforcement, first responders and the great work they do every day in maintaining peace, safety, health and unity throughout America. He wants them to have the resources and respect they deserve.
Small businesses must survive
Having spent many years helping both small and large businesses with their marketing strategies, Jack understands the unique struggles of smaller businesses in the Chicago area. He strongly supports an economic environment in which those businesses can thrive.
Government has too much power
Jack supports smaller government that reduces federal policy interference in local matters and the functioning of business. He believes excessive government involvement is a roadblock to progress.
Censorship is wrong.
Having achieved business success through the internet, Jack is a supporter of free internet speech and intends to tackle social media censorship of conservatives. He believes social media is a tool that should raise awareness of social injustices faced by all communities and that no one, in the government or private sector, has a right to censor those issues.
