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 proudly serves 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 is ready to take public service to next level, serving DuPage County residents with a fresh voice.
It is often said that "When we all do better, we all do better" and that's a reason why Julie wants to represent you. She knows DuPage County-she moved to Lisle's Four Lakes Village fresh out of law school, then lived in Naperville for many 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 will 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.
Join Julie so she can bring fresh ideas and responsible leadership to the DuPage County Board.
Hosting a meet and greet, canvassing, word-of-mouth, posting a yard sign or on social media and donating are all ways of helping us achieve our goals together.

District 3 includes all or parts of Bolingbrook, Burr Ridge, Clarendon Hills, Darien, Downers Grove, Hinsdale, Lemont, Naperville, Westmont, Willowbrook and Woodridge. Each County District is represented by three Board members.
Of 19 elected County Board positions, only one seat is occupied by a Democrat-Thank you Liz Chaplin-D2.
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. I will work to improve the health of county finances, grow DuPage business opportunities and fight to spare our residents further increase.
DuPage County, like other counties and communities across the country, faces difficulties funding services that support the health and welfare of our citizens. I prioritize structuring an efficient government that supports services that strengthen our human capital. Cutting the fat in existing budgets and bringing creative initiatives to strengthen our sales tax revenue will be an important part of funding resident services. I will fight for an improved quality of life for all of us.
