A truly bipartisan voice in Congress

For those of you living in the new 11th Congressional District, I urge you to vote for Judy Biggert for Congress. If I wasn't redistricted, I would proudly cast my vote for Judy because she has been an amazing advocate for our community.

As vice president of Mayslake Village, I have had the privilege of working with Congresswoman Biggert on senior housing issues. She played a critical role in obtaining HUD funds to construct a 150-unit building in 2004 and a 65-unit building in 2007 for low-income seniors. Judy helped us -- not for the headlines -- but because she truly cares about seniors. And she always makes a point to host town hall meetings and provide legislative updates for the seniors who live at Mayslake -- an event our residents always look forward to.

When I testified in Washington about the importance of remodeling older HUD senior buildings, I was so proud to watch Judy in action and see how well she interacted with Democrats and Republicans alike. Washington is too often stalled by partisan gridlock, but Judy is known for being one of the most bipartisan members of Congress.

Finally as a CPA for 35 years, I've always been impressed with Judy's smart fiscal sense. Judy never over-promises and has always taken a pragmatic, practical approach to our budget constraints today and in the future. As someone who knows money, I can say with certainty that Judy Biggert's working to get our economy back on track and get our nation out of debt.
