Jillian Bernas


State Representative
56th House District

Bernas  announced her candidacy for State Representative with a pledge to repeal the 32 percent tax increase, lower property taxes, and strengthen our communities by shrinking state government.

"Over the July 4th weekend establishment Democrats and Republicans hiked our taxes by 32 percent without lowering the high property taxes that are destroying our homes, or passing reforms," says Bernas. "We need a representative who will take on the political class regardless of party, not throw in with them."

Bernas lives in Schaumburg and is engaged to Angel Garcia. She is an international relations manager for a large medical association in Rolling Meadows. She serves as a Schaumburg Township District Library Trustee, on the Township of Schaumburg Mental Health Committee, and as an ESL teacher at Church of the Holy Spirit.
