WESTERN SPRINGS, IL — A Western Springs resident and former trustee has announced her candidacy for State Senator of the 24th District. According to a release, Democrat Suzy Glowiak is inspired to bring responsible decision-making back to state government.

“The people in District 24 are tired of watching important directives stalled by political division,” Glowiak said in a release. “Education and economic reform should not take a backseat to petty partisanship.”

According to the release, Glowiak has had an accomplished career as a mechanical engineer. Her decades of experience as an expert witness sharpened her ability to think on her feet and speak clearly while standing her ground in the courtroom.

Glowiak said during her time as a Trustee for the Western Springs Village Board, she was a voice for sound fiscal policies and protecting the taxpayers’ dollars while improving infrastructure. During her eight years as trustee, she worked to attract new businesses through a downtown redevelopment plan, and chaired the Public Works and Water committee through the construction of a new water purification plant.
