Biography

Stephanie Kifowit is serving her first term as State Representative of the 84th District. Kifowit is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, a former substitute teacher at East Aurora School District 131, and previously served as the 3rd Ward alderman in the city of Aurora.

Stephanie's priorities as state representative include fiscal responsibility and ensuring our state government lives within its means. Her experience as a registered financial advisor gives her the financial expertise to review the state budget line-by-line in order to make our government more efficient for taxpayers, eliminate unnecessary spending and save taxpayer dollars.

Stephanie will work with local employers to help create jobs and improve the infrastructure of the region. She is opposed to raising taxes on middle-class families. Stephanie strongly supports legislation to repeal the state income tax increase and freeze property taxes when home values decline.

To help address the challenges facing the state's pension systems, Stephanie has refused to take a legislative pension and she supports eliminating pensions for all lawmakers. She believes eliminating pensions for lawmakers and reserving pensions only for those who truly deserve them is an important first step in addressing the many problems challenging the state's budget and its pension systems.

Stephanie has made it a priority to honor her fellow military veterans. She spearheaded the effort to save the Aurora Fourth of July Parade by collaborating with the Aurora American Legion Post 84 when budget cuts threatened its continuation. Stephanie will continue to stand up for veterans by strengthening the state's Let Them Rest in Peace Act, which aims to protect military families from disrespectful protests at the funerals of fallen service members. She will also work to create better job opportunities for veterans returning from overseas, in order to provide support for both veterans and their families.

Stephanie attended Northern Illinois University and graduated with a B.S. in political science and a Masters of Public Administration. She and her husband, Steve, have two children, Sabrina and Samuel. The family is complete with Steve's daughter, Alexandria, her husband William, and their two children, William and Jonathon.

The 84th Representative District includes portions of Aurora, Oswego, Naperville, Montgomery and Boulder Hill.
