I’m Dave Vella and I’m running to be your next State Representative for the 68th District. Growing up here in Rockford, I was proud of my grandfather, E. J. “Zeke” Giorgi, who served our community with distinction as State Representative. Together with my parents, he helped teach me that one person can make a difference.
As an attorney, former public defender, elected Trustee for Rockford Township, husband and father, I have the background, passion, and creative ideas so desperately needed in Springfield. Over my lifetime I have seen the Rockford area at some of its highest and lowest points. Rockford today has problems, but it also has so much potential that is too often overlooked. I will work toward a reinvigorated Rockford area where new businesses open and new people come to work and live their lives. I want to reinvest in public education so that our children have the necessary skills for good-paying jobs when they become adults. I have many more ideas for how we can work together to make the Rockford area better and you can read about them on my issues page.
I was also taught that public service is a public trust. I’ll stand up to the corruption and the influence of big money interests. My only special interest will be you.
That’s why I’m asking for your vote. If you would like to volunteer, learn more, or receive a yard sign, please contact me with the form provided. If you would like to make a secure, online donation to our campaign, there is a donation button below.
Thank you for your kind consideration and I look forward to meeting and talking with you as I campaign across the district.
