Introducing Rev. Isaac Hayes, a community faith leader and congressional candidate running against incumbent, Jesse Jackson, for the U.S. House of Representatives in Illinois’ 2nd Congressional District. A graduate of Illinois State University, with a degree in Information Systems, Rev. Hayes worked 2 jobs and produced music to support himself through college. Through education and personal development, he quickly rose to become an Assistant to the V.P of a mortgage company. Although, he enjoyed a successful career he followed his father’s example and dedicated his life to faith and became an ordained minister in 2006. Serving his community is his primary focus, and Rev. Hayes remains a vocal spiritual and political figure. In 2009 he challenged Chicago's Mayor Daley on his intention to close mental health centers on the south side of Chicago; supported a moratorium on Chicago Public School closings; and, worked to help ex-offenders become entrepreneurs. Rev. Hayes is dedicated to continuing his record of service to God and to his community if elected as Representative of the 2nd Congressional District of Illinois. An outspoken critic of incumbent Jesse Jackson, Jr., Hayes issued a statement in his campaign’s June 24, 2010 press release responding to a Nov. 7, 2008, phone call between Rod Blagojevich and two of his advisers, in which ex-governor Blagojevich called Congressman Jackson "a bad guy”. According to Rev. Hayes, “The fact that a crooked governor would call Congressman Jackson a ‘bad guy’ is cause for great concern to the voters of the 2nd district. To be the worst of the worst may be a badge of honor in the Chicago Machine, but to his constituents it amounts to a corruption tax that makes it hard for them to live, work and do business. We need a clean break from the politics of the past and that starts by electing a Representative that has honesty and integrity.”
