"Love him or hate him, Proft has changed the political landcape for the Republican Party." - Capitol Fax | Mar 19, 2014

Mickey Straub

State Representative
82nd House District

"The future of the State and the Republican Party can only be assured through positive, conservative leadership and free-market policies," says Straub, who currently serves as the Mayor of Burr Ridge, Illinois. 

A well-known conservative and experienced businessman, Straub is serving his second term as mayor of prospering Burr Ridge. He is also the president of Sales Activity Management, Inc., a faith-based performance measurement company in Burr Ridge. 

Straub is a husband, parent, Catholic and community leader who visited 50 State Capitols in (less than) 50 Days to "promote Lincoln's principles and patriotism."

Straub holds that "too many longtime Republicans take the easy way out and surrender to the Democrats rather than fight for fiscal prudence and our future."

Straub was born and raised in Pennsylvania and received a degree in Criminology and Political Science from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. He started his career as a Special Agent with the U.S. Department of Defense in both Washington D. C. and Los Angeles then spent fourteen years in the insurance and financial services industry.
