ROCKFORD, Ill. – Local attorney Dave Vella will announce his candidacy for the 68th District of the Illinois House of Representatives on September 4th.
Mr. Vella’s family has a long history of public service and community engagement. Dave, his wife Michelle, and their two children live in Rockford, where Mr. Vella is the managing partner of Vella & Lund, LLC and a Rockford Township Trustee. He also has served on numerous community boards, including the Literacy Council and Keith Country Day School. His grandfather, Zeke Giorgi, served the Rockford area as State Representative for almost 30 years.
Access and accountability are paramount for Mr. Vella, as he hopes to bring the focus of Springfield back to the Northern Illinois region, specifically the 68th District.
“As an attorney, I can’t help people before I listen to them. I believe the same is true being State Representative,” Vella said. “I will make sure that the 68th is given a seat at the table in Springfield and that lawmakers are more attentive to the needs of Rockford area residents.”
Dave will announce his candidacy at a campaign kick-off on September 4, 2019 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at The Venetian Club, 2180 Elmwood Road, Rockford, IL. Any community member is invited and welcome to attend.
