Candidate Statement

Hello, my name is Mike Fricilone, Republican candidate for Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District.

I’ve lived here in the 3rd Congressional District for over 50 years.

Our District is full of hard workers and loving families. From the heart of the City of Chicago to the suburbs of Lockport, Romeoville, and Lemont our community is special because of our wonderful diversity.

I have been part of this community in many capacities, as a dad, a husband, a coach, an active church goer, and as the Republican leader on the Will County

During my time serving the people of Will County, I have been working hard to promote forward thinking values. I sit on our county finance committee which
oversees a $600 million budget, as well as taking a role in the oversight of our county pension system.

I am especially proud that during my time as Finance Chairman we actually reduced tax rates 4 years in a row. Then, without raising taxes, we built a new public safety center, 911 center, a new county courthouse and a new county health department.

I am proud that we were also able to find ways to incorporate renewable energy into these projects that will pay for themselves over the coming years.

In Congress, we must work to protect our borders and find a solution to DACA for these children and families.

We need to return the SALT tax deduction to taxpayers, especially those of us in the city and the suburbs whose taxes have grown astronomically. We must always keep our nation safe, by standing by that proven adage of ‘peace through strength.’

Finally, we must keep our economy on track, by ensuring that we continue to keep tax rates low.

On Tuesday March 17th, I ask for your vote.

I am the only genuine, viable Republican candidate on the Primary ballot.

I’m Mike Fricilone, running for Congress, and I am asking for your vote. Please visit, to join my campaign or ask me questions.

Thank you and God bless you.
