Tom Weber Running for State Rep.

Lake Villa, Ill. – Aug. 19, 2017 – Lake Villa resident and Lake County Board Member Tom Weber, small business owner and a conservative Republican, announced his candidacy today for Illinois State Representative in District 64, currently held by Barbara Wheeler. Wheeler recently announced she will not seek re-election in 2018.

From Tom Weber:

It is an honor serving the residents of my district on the County Board.

However, I feel I can serve them better in Springfield.

Taxpayers don’t need people giving up, they need an advocate willing to fight for them.

This is why I have decided to enter the race for State Representative.

Currently I am Lake County Board Member and Chairman of the Planning Building and Zoning Committee, Board Member Lake County Forest Preserve District, Board Member University of Illinois Extension Advisory Council for Lake and McHenry Counties, Board of Directors for the Youth Conservation Corp
and Board of Directors for Busy Brains Children’s Museum.

Illinois is my home and where I have raised my family.

I believe with the right leadership we can save our state.

It will take a lot of hard work and I would be honored to go to Springfield and represent the residents of District 64.

It will be interesting to see how Lake County candidates attempt to gain support in McHenry County. (My precinct is at the bottom left of the map.)

  1. Just another example how McHenry County loses out … it’s power base diminishes very single year.

    With lame lambs like Althoff, Reick and Wheeler-Dealer what would ya expect?

  2. Re: “Just another example how McHenry County loses out ”

    Voters can only choose based on the candidates who run for office.

    If you do not like the candidates, you do have another choice: Run yourself of recruit someone else to run.

    The borders of the 64th are a good example of the ‘gerrymandering’ of Legislative Districts. In McHenry County alone, there are 16 split precincts!

  3. Reflect on how McHenry County was sold out to the gravel pit operators and the George Ryan Culture of Corruption by Schaeffer, Hughes, Klemm, and Brown.

  4. Frank Bart is the military officer and former Mayor of Wauconda who is also running.

    He’s unflappable and does’t buckle to pressure.

    Wonder who Walsh is supporting?

    Anyone know?

  5. There’s a progressive running in this district.

    Brand new to the political system.

    Trying to bring the county onto Ameya Pawar’s vision for the future of Illinois.

  6. Please suggest the person send an announcement press release.
