Former Western Springs trustee Suzy Glowiak is taking another run for the Illinois Senate’s 24th District seat.
Glowiak announced Sept. 24 her intentions to participate in the March 2018 Democratic primary. Glowiak was defeated in 2014 by state Sen. Chris Nybo, R-Elmhurst. She garnered about 40 percent of the vote in that race.
A fiscal conservative, Glowiak plans to campaign on returning responsible decision-making back to state government, her campaign news release stated.
“The people in District 24 are tired of watching important directives stalled by political division,” Glowiak said in the release. “Education and economic reform should not take a backseat to petty partisanship."
Glowiak is a mechanical engineer who spent eight years on the Western Springs Village Board. During that time, she advocated for implementing sound fiscal policies and protecting taxpayer dollars while improving infrastructure, according to the release.
Specifically, she worked to attract new businesses through a downtown redevelopment plan and chaired the Public Works and Water Committee through the construction of a new water purification plant, the release stated.
Glowiak is a 25-year resident of Western Springs. She has been a volunteer in local schools, her church and many other community organizations, according to the release.
The 24th Senate District includes all or parts of Downers Grove, Elmhurst, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Lisle, Lombard, Westmont, Oak Brook, Hinsdale, Clarendon Hills, Villa Park and Western Springs.
