I’m Robert “Rusty” Stevens, and I am running for elected office. It would be my high honor and distinct privilege to serve the great citizens of Illinois’ 46th district in Springfield as your elected State Representative, including Glendale Heights, Villa Park, Addison, Bloomingdale, and parts of Elmhurst, Lombard, Glen Ellyn, and Oakbrook.
My friends and neighbors have asked me why I would want to run again.
This is why: I still believe that Illinois is salvageable. We have everything we need here.
Natural resources, farmland, industry, infrastructure and most of all great hardworking people.
I want to be your voice.
I learned a great deal during my first run in 2022. I had no idea what to expect. All I knew was that no one was stepping up to give our community a choice.
One of the best things about running was learning more than I ever knew about our 46th district. There are so many people in our district doing good things of their own volition. They put in their time, energy, heart and their own money behind what ever good cause they are championing.
Recently we have seen a surge in crime, drug overdoses, poor grade performance and higher taxes. We need to hold the line in DuPage, not adopt the failures of Cook County.
I reviewed my past website content while updating this page.
Unfortunately, many of the issues that we spoke about, still need to be addressed.
I hope that you will support me in our effort to preserve and protect our wonderful community.
