About Adam Broad

Citizen Dad/Lisa's guy. Public Servant. Community organizer. This is my personal blog. Opinions mine. I have a wide variety of affiliations. I don't always speak for them. They don't always speak for me.

Shout out to everybody that cares

I was scheduled to be on a speakers panel in North Chicago at 2:30pm. That’s why I had to leave the Tom Rudd press conference at 2:50pm. The 2:30 pm event at North Chicago Library was co-organized by Our Revolution Lake County, National Nurses United, and the Illinois Single-Payer Coalition. It was a screening of the 35 min. healthcare documentary Fix It. I was scheduled to be on the speakers panel and that’s why I could not be more than 30 minutes late. Normally I would consider it unacceptable to show up 30 minutes late for an event I co-organized, but I wanted to show my support for Dr. Tom Rudd. I stand with the Ministers and Activists calling for Gov. Pritzker to pardon Dr. Rudd.

Fun with #M4A in the snow

Dr. Neil Perlman and Adam Broad talking single payer healthcare and random thoughts in Winnetka, IL

I joined my friend of over 40 years, Dr. Neil, at his single payer school year event at the Winnetka Rotary lunch.

Improved #MedicareForAll That’s single-payer #M4A Accept no substitutes or half-measures. Next time Rep. Brad Schneider talks about “reducing pharmaceutical costs” respectfully suggest he join Bernie Sanders and Broad For Congress at capping pharma co-pays at $200 pr year w/ zero-co-pays, zero deductibles, and zero premiums for healthcare.


Learn more about Improved #MedicareForAll with a free screening of Fix It and a panel discussion w/ audience Q and A 2:30p – 4:30p at North Chicago Public Library 2100 Argonne Dr. North Chicago, IL. Hosted by National Nurses United, Our Revolution Lake County and Illinois Single-Payer Coalition.

We are the alternative

When it comes to using healthcare dollars for CEO and shareholder wealth, Trump and the corporate establishment politicians of both parties are all on the same side. We are the alternative.

Johnny Skatepunk knows #ClimateEmergency

I first met John Powell a.k.a. Johnny Skatepunk circa 1984-85 via the underground Carbondale punk rock scene. Places like Airwaves or Cafe Flesh that featured bands like The Hip Chemists, Your Mother’s Lover, Nice Boys From Good Homes, Life Without Art, The Jesus Guys, Blood Stained Tool, and The Coffee Achievers.

Johnny went on to become a scientist and an avid sailor. While the political establishment considers the Bernie Sanders Green New Deal plan to be too radical, Johnny echos a fragment of discouraged scientists that believe it may already be too late to mitigate #ClimateEmergency. He related his personal experiences in Antarctica to his skepticism, though he remains in favor of making the boldest effort possible to save ourselves.

These are iphone videos are from my visit with Johnny while canvassing North Chicago to get on the ballot as part of my run for Congress in IL-10.

Weekend Campaign Trail Stuff

OctoBERNfest. Old Hideaway. Cary, IL

A lot of rain yesterday. I was in a tent on stage and the crowd was in a food tent across a wide field. I could barely see the faces of the people in the tent and they were mostly eating brats and drinking beer while I started. One of the musical acts setting up, working and talking around me is obvious from the video.

On the plus side, I was able to engage the crowd and had a number of people introduce themselves to me afterwards asking me “What can I do to help your campaign?”

Brad voted correctly on Yemen. We all make mistakes here. Waiting for Brad to admit he made a mistake on Medicare For All and the defense budget. Thanks to our campaign manager Colleen LaVigne who works with Lisa Peck to keep this campaign and this candidate honest.
CB feels the BERN. From apolitical to campaign activist in one campaign cycle.

Your donation pays union printers to help this campaign educate voters about ending the free ride for health insurance CEOs and shareholders who get rich from a system the kills and bankrupts Americans.
