Endorsement Statements from Third District Mayors and Village Presidents

Palos Hills - Mayor Jerry Bennett
“As President of the Southwest Conference of Mayors for the past 35 years, I know how important it is to have a Representative who works closely with local elected officials and helps them to take care of their communities. Dan Lipinski has done just that, working with mayors and other officials to make our communities even better places to live and work.”

Oak Lawn – Village President Sandra Bury
“Congressman Lipinski is an accessible and highly visible representative who listens to our community’s needs and produces results. He has had a real tangible impact in making Oak Lawn an even better place to live, work, and shop by bringing us weekend Metra service, getting a train horn quiet zone added, aiding our first responders in acquiring multiple grants, and helping with revitalization around Patriot Station.”

Orland Hills – Village President Kyle Hastings
“I’m endorsing Dan because our community cares deeply for our veterans and seniors and so does he. Dan’s constituent services are outstanding, especially when it comes to helping our veterans get support from the VA and our seniors get their benefits from Medicare and Social Security.”

Lyons - Village President Christopher Getty
“Dan has been a fixture in our community. From attending Fourth of July parades to Cops Night Out events, he always takes the time to meet with our residents and to listen. That’s why Dan is successful as a congressman – because he listens to his constituents and fights for their interests.”

Summit – Acting Village President Sergio Rodriquez
“Dan Lipinski is a great advocate for the Village of Summit. We are working with him to modernize our community’s transportation infrastructure, which includes upgrading our Metra station and improving local roads. And he secured federal resources to help keep our emergency responders safe. He cares for us.”
