About the Candidate
Name: Niki Conforti
DOB: June 23, 1963
Occupation: Energy consultant
Political Experience: New to politics
My name is Niki Conforti, and I am running for the Republican nomination for Illinois’ 6th Congressional District.
I am not a politician. I don’t hold elected office. I am a fresh face to politics. I am not in this for me. I am in this to protect our way of life.
To tell you a little bit about me, I am a single mom and the daughter of an immigrant. And I’m fortunate to have extensive industry experience in areas directly related to federal policy. Today I am an energy consultant, so I support energy independence. I have an MBA in healthcare and I worked for many years with large healthcare systems. So, I know how to deliver healthcare. I owned my own small business. So, I know how increased regulation can break the back of small business owners. I worked in the job market, so I know how to get people back to work. And I have an undergraduate degree in Economics. So, I understand the inflationary issues that we are all dealing with today.
In Congress, it’s about writing Federal Policy. When I was at Presence, which is now Amita Healthcare, I worked with General Counsel and wrote corporate policy for the system. So, I know how to write meaningful policy that benefits all the people.
My top 3 issues are lowering crime, improving education, and curbing spending.
When in Congress I will work to push legislation that will address these and other issues affecting the people of the 6th District. I plan to improve police funding programs and promote reviews of sentencing for federal convicts. I plan to improve curriculums and protect parental rights. Additionally, I plan to work for energy independence and curbing inflation with policies that benefit the people of my district and all Americans.
Why are you running?
To preserve and protect the American Dream. We need to protect this country and protect our children, and thereby protect our future. I am not a politician, nor an elected official. I am not in this for myself. I am not in this to advance my career or make a name for myself. I am in this for our country. I am in this for our children.
What does this office do well, and what needs fixing?
The office has done a good job of holding townhall meetings. Even so, it has gotten off track and lost touch with the everyday American. The large spending bills being pushed through, along with legislation proposed by this office to downgrade our inalienable rights, has hurt the people of this district. Costs for essentials (food and gas) are on the rise. We need to fix the rising inflation, food and energy costs, and protect our Constitutional Rights.
What is the most pressing issue facing your constituents and how do you plan on addressing it?
My district has been plagued by rising crime and the rising cost of living. Chicago's radical DA has been soft on crime. When I am in office, I plan to improve funding of police programs and promote reviews of current reforms to ensure we have proper sentencing guidelines in place for federal convicts. Additionally, I plan to work towards energy independence and curbing inflation with policies that benefit the people of my district and all Americans.
What specific steps would you take to ensure your office is accessible and responsive to your constituents?
I have already made plans to create a full-blown constituent services team that will specifically be tasked with responding to the people of my district. They will be on duty answering calls and emails, addressing their concerns, and scheduling appointments with me directly. I am dedicated to staying in touch with the people I will be representing.
