Endorsement: Andersson in House District 65
"Andersson also wants to go after double dipping from public pension systems. For those reasons, Andersson is endorsed."
65th House District
GOP Primary: Attorney Steven Andersson, who has served as both a trustee and treasurer on the Geneva Library District Board for nearly 5 years, has a wealth of local government experience. He has been General Counsel for the Village of Montgomery, the Village of Sugar Grove, the Village of Hinckley and Counsel for the MetroWest Council of Government. That experience has won Andersson the confidence and the endorsements of 62 elected local leaders throughout Kane County and Northern Illinois, including, most important, the highly respected State Senator Karen McConnaughay (R-St. Charles). He is the right person for the district. Andersson is endorsed.
Geneva, IL… Building on the momentum started since he first announced his run for state representative, Steve Andersson (R-Geneva) has announced the endorsements of 62 elected and local leaders throughout Kane County and Northern Illinois. The strong local support is a clear indication of the forward movement in the Andersson campaign and signals that Steve Andersson is the best candidate suited to replace Tim Schmitz in the 65th District.
“I am proud to have the endorsements of the people that I have worked with in both my professional career and as a community volunteer and leader,” said Andersson. “These are the people that make our communities what they are today. To have their support is such a source of pride. I am grateful to all of the people who are willing to publicly back my campaign.”
The Senator for the 65th District, Karen McConnaughay, has thrown her full support behind Andersson’s campaign. She looks forward to serving with Steve in the Illinois General Assembly for the betterment of our local community.
“I’ve had many years of firsthand experience working with Steve Andersson,” said McConnaughay. “He has a track record of knowing how to bring divergent interests together, build consensus, and seek solutions for stronger communities and more efficient government. Steve is a dedicated, smart, and honest public servant. He has my enthusiastic support.”
Mayor of Pingree Grove, Greg Marston, too has worked with Steve for many years and is also giving Steve his full support. Marston and Andersson have worked together on numerous projects in Pingree Grove, bringing much needed jobs and residential developments to our community.
“I endorse Steve Andersson for State Representative of the 65th District,” said Marston. “Steve, a licensed attorney, excels in the areas of municipal law and government ethics. In my years of working with Steve in village government, I have found him totally trustworthy and incorruptible. Steve's well-known commitment to government accountability and pro-growth strategy will protect the taxpayers of our great state. I am confident Steve’s good judgment and consensus building approach is exactly what is needed in Springfield. If you want to see honest people in government, join me in supporting Steve Andersson for State Representative.”
The full list of Andersson elected/local endorsements include:
Elected Officials State and County
Elected Officials of Local Government
Trustee Robert Bohler (Sugar Grove)
Legal Community of Kane County
Past Presidents of the Kane County Bar Association
As a long time member of our community who cares about our future, I want my representative to support my values. Steve Andersson is that person. I know him to be honest, intelligent, thoughtful, persuasive and effective
His career is built around working with communities to maximize their economic vitality and success. I encourage everyone to participate in the GOP primary election on March 18 and help elect Steve Andersson to the Illinois House of Representatives to help get Illinois back on track.
For far too long, we have seen our state serve under a reign of spend money now, ask questions later. Steve will thoroughly look over the state budget, line by line, and identify waste and inefficacy. This is the type of leadership we need in Springfield.
