Candidate Statement

Hello. I’m Mike Fricilone and I’m running for Congress in the 3rd Congressional District.

For the first time in 16 years, this November, we’ll be voting to send a new Congressman to Washington. Everyone agrees we need our next representative to focus on the residents in the 3rd District and represent our values in Washington. My solutions for our 3rd Congressional District are mainstream, common sense, bold, and aligned with the values of our community.

When Dan Lipinski lost his Primary Election, we lost one of the most common sense, bipartisan voices in Congress and replaced him with socialist Marie Newman. Marie Newman’s plans aren’t focused on the 3rd District, they are taken from the most extreme leftists in Washington. Her plans for healthcare, the environment, the economy, and every other issue are aligned with socialists Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—they certainly don’t reflect the mainstream and commonsense values of our community. When I am elected to represent you in Congress, I will join the same caucus that mainstream Congressman Dan Lipinski was part of, “The Problem Solvers Caucus,” because I will be a Congressman that actually takes action and solves problems.

The choice in this election is clear: If you want to improve our healthcare system, foster a thriving economy, and protect our environment and increase public safety by supporting our police, I am the candidate that will achieve these goals and protect our American way of life. If you want to, at minimum, double taxes on working families, socialized healthcare which will hurt our most vulnerable neighbors, pursue an extreme environmental plan that destroys our economy, and defund police, Marie Newman is your candidate.

I understand our community because I’ve been part of it for over 55 years, including as a leader on the Will County Board since 2012.

Now I want to represent our community in Congress. I will be your voice, advocating for policies that align with our hardworking 3rd District values. Together, we will move our community forward.

Thank you for listening.

Candidate Q&A

Why are you running?

When Dan Lipinski lost his Primary Election, we lost one of the most common sense, bipartisan voices in Congress and replaced him with socialist Marie Newman. Marie Newman’s plans aren’t focused on the 3rd District, they are taken from the most extreme leftists in Washington. Her plans for healthcare, the environment, the economy, and every other issue are aligned with socialists Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—they certainly don’t reflect the mainstream and commonsense values of our community. When I am elected to represent you in Congress, I will join the same caucus that mainstream Congressman Dan Lipinski was part of, “The Problem Solvers Caucus,” because I will be a Congressman that actually takes action and solves problems.

What is your vision for this office?
The choice in this election is clear: If you want to improve our healthcare system, foster a thriving economy, and protect our environment, I am the candidate that will achieve these goals and protect our American way of life. If you want to at minimum double taxes on working families, socialize healthcare which will hurt our most vulnerable neighbors, and pursue an extreme environmental plan that destroys our economy, Marie Newman is your candidate. I understand our community because I’ve been part of it for over 55 years, including as a leader on the Will County Board since 2012. Now I want to represent our community in Congress. I will take my approach of mainstream, commonsense solutions to the people’s house in Washington to represent you. I will be your voice, advocating for policies that align with our hardworking 3rd District values. Together, we will move our community forward.
What do you think is the most pressing issue facing your constituents and how do you plan on addressing it?

If I am honored to have your vote, I will bring mainstream, commonsense solutions to our nation’s capital that are aligned with the values of our 3rd District residents. When I go to cast my vote on legislation, my thought will be “does this make the lives of families and small businesses in our community better?” I will push forward legislation that lowers taxes, creates a better way of life for families and seniors, and improves the business climate of our district. I will ensure America stays energy independent while developing common sense solutions to protect our environment. And I will address healthcare by improving services and lowering costs for all Americans.
