steve’s Story

I’ve been a St. Charles resident for 40 years, having moved here for a job. I never left. I got married, raised two daughters, and now enjoy three granddaughters and one grandson. 

I worked as a supervisor installing stairs and railings in homes and businesses across the county. 

I’ve spent much of my life fighting to improve the livability of average citizens, just like me. I volunteer for several area community service agencies: Lazarus House, Fox Valley Citizens for Peace and Justice, Habitat for Humanity, and Illinois Citizens for Clean Elections.

I understand how hard it is to work for a living and pay taxes, while trying to enjoy a quality of life we cherish here in Kane County. 

I will work to represent you in spending our county tax dollars wisely.

the issues


Our quality of life here in Kane County is precious, which is why citizens pay taxes for our county government to function. I will be extremely mindful of the tax burden we already have, while addressing the necessary functions of government for Kane County to be livable and prosperous for everyone.


Traffic congestion is a significant problem throughout much of the county. To alleviate some of the congestion, we need to secure full funding for the Long Meadow Parkway to finish that vital project. Public transportation should be expanded so everyone can easily get to work, shop, and enjoy recreational activities while still saving money on gas with the assurance road quality will be maintained. 


Transparency at all levels of government  is vital for our democracy to thrive. Citizens hae a right to know of any conflicts of interest in their elected officials. They have a right to know government business, the people’s business, and how their tax dollars are being spent. I am committed 100% to transparency across all functions of county government because you have a right to know how your hard-earned tax dollars are being spent. 

Steve will work for you
