Statement from Anna Schiefelbein, 
Candidate for Illinois State House, IL-85

July 19, 2022

     As many of you know, I collected 1,353 signature petitions as a Green Party candidate for the State House, District 85 race and was 147 signatures shy of the 1,500 requirement to file. The signatures I collected were more than three times the number of signatures required for the Democrats and Republicans to obtain ballot access.

     However, this will not stop my goal of helping the power of the people. I will continue to work hard to ensure this seat is filled with a non-corporate elected official, which is why I am submitting the paperwork to be a write-in on the ballot. I know this is another uphill battle but if we all work together and spread the word, we could make the State House, District 85 seat into one that will help end corporate contributions in our political system. In order for the power of the people to flourish, we must cut our ties with elected officials who accept corporate contributions. I, for one, will not sit on the sidelines and go silently into the midterms.

Meet Anna

Growing up in Cicero, Illinois, Anna learned firsthand of the struggles that communities of working class families faced. These experiences at a young age sparked her passion to help the people, communities, and small businesses that are the heart of our country.

Anna’s family moved to Woodridge, Illinois in the early 1990’s. Woodridge quickly became home to her, and a place she hoped she could raise her own family. In 2008, she met her husband Jeff, and they married in 2010. They purchased a house in Woodridge and began a family with their two boys, Anthony and Benjamin. The boys currently attend public school at William F. Murphy Elementary School.

After completing a Masters in Public Administration from the University of Phoenix online, Anna began law school in 2013 at UIC – John Marshall Law School. She was in the part-time program until she earned her J.D. in May 2019.

With the much needed changes on the horizon, Anna seeks to level the political playing field by increasing public participation, closing corporate loopholes, and putting an end to candidates and elected officials receiving corporate contributions.
