For Illinois House Dist. 46: Reboletti

Success - Article sent! close

In the 46th Illinois House District, Republican Dennis Reboletti of Elmhurst is seeking a third two-year term.
Reboletti, a former Elmhurst alderman and Addison Township trustee, rightfully says creating jobs, cutting waste in state programs and reforming state government are priorities.
As a former prosecutor, he also is interested in criminal justice issues, such as leading a House committee on revamping the prisoner early release program that got Gov. Pat Quinn in trouble last year.
His opponent is Elmhurst Unit District 205 board member Deborah O'Keefe Conroy. She, too, points to job creation and government reform as top priorities. She has more moderate views on social issues than Reboletti.
However, in an era in Springfield in which Democrats control both chambers, she does not make a strong case on how replacing Reboletti will force the ethics reforms that are needed and so far blocked by that majority.
Reboletti is endorsed. The district includes parts of Addison, Bensenville, Elmhurst, Itasca, Lombard, Villa Park and Wood Dale.
