SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Daniel Didech, D-Buffalo Grove, issued the following statement after being sworn in as a first-term legislator of the 101st General Assembly in Springfield on Wednesday:
“I am humbled that my neighbors placed their trust in me to bring the positive change we accomplished in Vernon Township to state government, where I will continue to work to reduce the tax burden on middle-class families, protect our communities from senseless gun violence, and fight back against Donald Trump’s extreme agenda.
“Illinois faces many challenges after four years of reckless leadership coupled with a president who has fought to take health care away from women and people with pre-existing conditions. Getting our state back on track will not be easy, but I’m ready to work with both Democrats and Republicans to make real progress on the issues affecting families across Illinois. Over the next few months, I will be introducing legislation that will provide real property tax relief to middle-class families by empowering them to make government smaller, as well as protect children and their schools from senseless gun violence.
“I will also focus on providing our community the tools and resources they need to help themselves and their families. I’ll be working with state agencies and local groups to bring an array of free events and services into our community, including property tax appeal seminars, senior resource fairs, food and school supply drives, and more. I encourage everyone to be on the lookout for announcements regarding these events, where my full-time constituent service office will be located and how they can stay in touch with me in the weeks ahead.”
Didech represents the 59th House District which includes portions of 14 towns, including large parts of Buffalo Grove, Vernon Hills, Mundelein, Wheeling, Lincolnshire and Park City.
