ALGONQUIN — A longtime Algonquin resident announced she wanted to represent much of McHenry and Kane counties as a state senator Thursday.
Nancy Zettler publicized her candidacy in a news release Thursday; she is running for Illinois State Senator from the 33rd district.
“People are fed up with the political rancor and drama that has come to define Springfield. People in my district want our elected officials to put partisanship aside and work together to get things done,” Zettler said. “It’s time that politicians start serving the public that put them in office, instead of special interest groups and huge corporations. People want an independent voice who will not turn her back on them. I want to be that voice.”
The democrat from Algonquin says she has a long history of reaching across the aisle to "get things done for public education" and save taxpayers money.
She describes herself as an accomplished attorney, small business owner and community activist and said she has lived in Algonquin with her husband and children for almost 20 years.
Zettler ran for Illinois State Representative for the 66th District in 2016 and is a Dundee Township Precinct Committeeman.
“Politicians in Springfield have turned their backs on Illinois families,” Zettler said. “I want to bring my skills as an attorney and a small business owner to work to ensure that our government gets things done for our schools, businesses and families in the 33rd district.”
