My name is Emily McAsey and I am running for re-election for State Representative of the 85th District. I have spent the past eighteen months working for you and listening to the concerns of our neighbors.

I am not a career politician and view running for re-election as a duty of public service to the community that I live in. Before serving as your full time State Representatives I was an eighth grade social studies teacher, and after attending law school at night, I joined the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office as a criminal prosecutor. I am an independent person and I
understand the importance of working with others — despite political or personality differences — to do what is right for the people of our community.

My priorities remain fighting against efforts to raise income taxes on families, cleaning up government corruption, ending ‘pay to play’ politics in Illinois, fixing roads and reducing congestion, and creating jobs and economic opportunities for everyone.

As your State Representative, I will always be available to listen to your concerns and will work on the issues that matter to you. You have my word that I will always represent you and the working people who call our community home, and I will stand up to the special interest groups that view our community as nothing more than an exit off the highway.

Please feel free to contact me at 815.293.0085 if you would like to discuss my campaign or if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
