Hometown resident to run for Congress

Updated: November 24, 2011 8:20AM



Hometown resident Richard Grabowski announced Friday that he will seek the Republican nomination in the 3rd Congressional District.

If he wins the nomination, Grabowski will likely face U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski in the November 2012 general election.

“We simply have to change our course and do it now if we are to put our fiscal house in order and get our people back to work,” Grabowski said in a prepared statement.

Grabowski is married and has four sons. He is a materials supervisor at a manufacturing company and has never held elected office.
