Republican senators, activist in Quincy today stumping for State Sen. candidate
Randy Frese, Republican candidate for the state senate, wants state budget bills online before the General Assembly can act on them.
Frese appeared with Adam Andrzejewski in Quincy's Washington Park this morning to discuss government transparency. Andrzejewski, a conservative who ran for governor in 2010, has been a fiscal hawk and promotes having easy public access to all state finances.
"If the General Assembly is voting on a budget bill, I believe that the bill should be posted for at least 24 hours prior to a vote," Frese said. "It's our job to provide (taxpayers) that information in a tangible and transparent way for a reasonable period of time."
Andrzjewski, whose political action committee is running a television ad linking Frese's opponent, Sen. John Sullivan (D-Rushville), to Chicago politicians and accuses him of voting for pay increases, also formally endorsed Frese this morning.

With the passing of Labor Day comes the traditional heating up of the campaign season.
Two Republican Illinois Senators will spend the day stumping for State Senate candidate Randy Frese of Paloma, who is running against Sen. John Sullivan (D-Rushville)
Sen. Sam McCann (R-Carlinville) and Sen. Darin LaHood (R-Peoria) will host a noon fundraiser for Frese at Tony's Too. The two senators will also be on WTAD's Morning Meeting with Bryan Nichols and Sean Secrease at 10 a.m.
Also appearing on the program will be Adam Andrzejewski, who runs the For the Good of Illinois political action committee. Andrzejewski produced a television ad that discussed Sullivan's voting record and ties to President Barack Obama and other Chicago politicians.
Andrzejewski will host a news conference in Washington Park before his appearance on WTAD.
The men will also be speaking at the monthly meeting of the Quincy Tea Party tonight at the Microtel Inn and Suites. A fundraising dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. and the meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.
