Julie's DuPage News & Perspectives


Serving The Community

Julie Renehan is a wife, mother of three, an attorney, dedicated advocate and a longtime Democrat.  She began her law practice in DuPage County courts and has tirelessly worked to make her community a better place--from PTO to Veterans Benefits appeals, from Public Affairs advocate to Jr. Womens' club legislative chair to voting registrar and election judge.   Julie has proudly served as a Board member and pro bono attorney with the Pro Bono Network, an organization that provides free legal aid to low income individuals who would not otherwise be served. She takes public service to next level on the DuPage County Board, serving DuPage County residents with a fresh voice.

United By A Common Goal

It is often said that "When we all do better, we all do better" and that is how Julie approaches life and leadership. She knows DuPage County-she moved to Lisle's Four Lakes Village fresh out of law school, then lived in Naperville for seven years before moving to Hinsdale to be nearer her husband's business in Willowbrook.  

As a DuPage taxpayer for so many years, Julie is committed to integrity in decision making and in spending of hardearned citizen tax dollars. She brings a focus on controlling county spending through vetting contracts thoroughly and working to find creative solutions to fund infrastructure and social services for DuPage residents in need including our seniors, veterans and mentally ill.

DuPage County: District 3 Issues

Our District

District 3 includes all or parts of Burr Ridge, Clarendon Hills, Darien, Downers Grove, Hinsdale, Lemont, Naperville, Westmont, Willowbrook and Woodridge. Each County District is represented by three Board members.

Property Tax

DuPage County has some of the highest property taxes in the country.  These taxes impact our district as residents, even those who have lived in their homes for many years, struggle to keep up with increasing assessments.  Would be citizens choose to move to other communities to avoid our tax rate, negatively impacting DuPage businesses.  Julie's goal is to improve the health of county finances, to grow DuPage business opportunities and to spare our residents further increase.

Community Services

DuPage County, like other counties and communities across the country, faces difficulties funding services that support the health and welfare of our citizens.  Julie  prioritizes structuring an efficient government that builds capacity and puts people first.  Cutting the fat in existing budgets and bringing creative initiatives will be an important part of funding resident services. Julie believes in an improved quality of life for all of 

Thank you for your Support.
