Adam Andrzejewski Talks Financial Repression and Actions for Government Transparency

Adam Andrzejewski

Adam Andrzejewski discusses his public initiatives to bring more transparenccy of government spending at all levels to the electorate.

Gordon T. Long interviewed Adam Andrzejewski, the Chairman of American Transpareny and Editor, OpenTheBooks.com. on his personal goals which prompted his launch of these public projects. Mr Andrzejewski's American "Heratio Alger" story needs to be told.

In October 1997, Adam Andrzejewski founded an independent publishing business with his brother, Abram Andrzejewski. The publishing company, HomePages Directories, employs nearly 150 people and has an annual revenue of nearly $20 million. Adam Andrzejewski also started a grassroots initiative to enable local counties and school boards to post their check register online.

On March 1, 2009, Adam Andrzejewski announced his intent to run for the office of Governor of Illinois. Andrzejewski was one of four Republicans to file with the Illinois State Board of Elections to be placed on the ballot, submitting over 14,000 signatures. On 25 January 2010 Andrzejewski received an endorsement from Lech Walesa, former Polish President and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. On 1 February 2010, Andrzejewski was endorsed by talk radio host Rush Limbaugh. On 2 February 2010 Andrzejewski was defeated by a significant margin in the Republican primary for Governor of Illinois.

His platform was based on government transparency. His campaign slogan was "Every Dime Online in Real Time." Today as Chairman of American Transparency and Editor, OpenTheBooks.com. he is following through in a high profile and aggressive manner on his campaign platform and his personal goal to bring visibility of all levels of public government spending to the voting public.

Adam believes it is this visibility which will force accountability and responsibility from elected officials charged with the fiscal decisions of local, city, state and federal government offices.

"Open The Books" has become a national rallying cry for transparency in public spending. U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, sponsor of the 2006 "Google Your Government Act," recognized Adam's work,

"Open the Books is doing the work I envisioned when the Coburn-Obama bill became law. Their innovative app and other tools are putting sunlight through a magnifying glass."
