Endorsements

"The west suburban 14th Congressional District was solidly Republican — until it wasn’t. Four-term incumbent Rep. Randy Hultgren lost in 2018 to Democratic newcomer Lauren Underwood. Now seven Republicans want a shot at Rep. Underwood. Among them is state Sen. Jim Oberweis of Sugar Grove, who has run for Illinois governor and U.S. Senate. Another challenger is Catalina Lauf of Woodstock, a young conservative whom we think has political promise. Our endorsement in this race goes to state Sen. Sue Rezin of Morris, a consistent advocate for financial stability in Illinois who also specializes in health care and energy issues. Also running: James T. “Jim” Marter of Oswego, Ted Gradel of Naperville, Jerry Evans of Warrenville and Anthony Catella of St. Charles"


State Senator Donald DeWitte

My State Senate colleague Sue Rezin has an appealing legislative record on the issues that matter: healthcare, education funding, property tax relief, veterans, energy, agriculture, and she has been a nationally recognized expert on flood prevention and mitigation.

Last year she succeeded in rounding up the votes for unanimous passage in the State Senate for her bill to prevent preexisting conditions from once again being able to prevent people from getting the health coverage they need.

She has fought relentlessly against all of the chronic overspending, income tax increases and irresponsible management of the state by Governors Pat Quinn and J.B. Pritzker, Speaker Madigan and Senate President Cullerton.

Sue began public service by getting elected to her local school board. The insights she gained from that experience have enabled her to be a relentless advocate for allowing the sharing of school administration costs between districts.

That innovative approach won Sue the Legislator of the Year Award last fall from Transform Illinois at the Metropolitan Planning Council because it presents a real way to lower property taxes by saving on expenses for the largest component of our property taxes—the amount spent on education.

Sue is admirably guided by her commitment to tried and true conservative principles.

Most of all, Sue has proven time and again that she has what it takes to win. She is a relentlessly hard worker and maintains focus when going gets tough. She is a substantive woman with admirable accomplishments. I urge you to join me in enthusiastically supporting Sue Rezin for Congress.

Mayor Jeff Schielke

When a state legislative matter is going to affect my city, I don’t hesitate to make calls to legislators or visit Springfield to present our case. For years, State Senator Sue Rezin has always been one of the most reliable Senators I can count on.

Sue listens, and she always follows through. She is deep on the issues and how government works. She is able to grasp the issues quickly and communicate with others in a compelling manner to garner new supporters. She has been tenacious in getting results—and she doesn’t even represent Batavia in the State Senate!

Sue Rezin is exactly the kind of representative people can reliably call upon. She is responsive like few others I have dealt with in my many years as mayor of Batavia. Sue is driven by making a positive difference for as many people as possible, and I find that highly admirable. As a Congresswoman, Sue Rezin will be the most effective advocate possible for all of our communities.

I wholeheartedly endorse Sue Rezin because Batavia needs her representing us in Congress.

— Jeff Schielke, Mayor of Batavia
