As subscribers have known for a while, Andrzejewski has been talking about running for state treasurer. If you’re going, gentlemen, don’t forget your jackets. Kind of a weird setting for a statewide announcement.
*** UPDATE *** Illinois Review…
Andrzejewski, who founded and heads up the transparency group “For the Good of Illinois” was in Washington DC this week, but told Illinois Review that despite the DC meetings, he’s not contemplating a bid for Congress in 2014.
“I’ve been redistricted out of Judy Biggert’s old district, so I’m not running for Congress,” he said.
What about a statewide position then? “I’ve also already said that I’m not running for governor,” Andrzejewski said.
When asked about state comptroller or treasurer - something many speculate he would be interested in - he hesitated. “Well, there’s a problem there, neither Topinka nor Rutherford have officially announced their intentions for 2014,” he said.
Last week, Andrzejewski announced the formation of a federal version of “For the Good of Illinois” to pursue transparency in federal spending and the national budget. Whatever office Andrzejewski intends to pursue, it’s fairly certain open government will be a part of his campaign platform.
