Meet Stephanie!


Stephanie Kifowit is running for state representative in the 84th District to bring new leadership to the state of Illinois.

Stephanie has a strong record of service to our country and our local community. She is a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps, a substitute teacher for East Aurora School District 131, Troop Leader for the Fox Valley Girl Scout Council and Alderman for the Third Ward in Aurora.

As an alderman, Stephanie Kifowit has focused on balancing Aurora’s budget, improving infrastructure in her ward and promoting local business growth. The lack of fiscal responsibility among the career politicians in Springfield is the top reason Stephanie decided to run for state representative. She has worked as a registered Financial Advisor and will use her financial expertise to fix the budget and stop the state from wasting your tax dollars.

A veteran who volunteered to serve her country, Stephanie has made it a priority to honor her fellow military veterans. When the city of Aurora cut its support for the Aurora Fourth of July Parade because of budgetary constraints, Stephanie spearheaded the effort to save the parade with American Legion Post 84. The parade was a huge success, drawing over 10,000 area residents to the event to honor our nation’s history and local veterans. She is a member of AmVets Aurora Post 103 and American Legion Aurora Post 84, Fox Valley Marines Detachment #1233, the Women Marine Association and her local Veteran’s Breakfast Group.

Stephanie attended Northern Illinois University and graduated with a B.S. in Political Science and a Masters of Public Administration. Her husband Steve, also is an Northern Illinois University graduate and an Army veteran. He currently is a Professor of Mathematics at Prairie State College.

Stephanie has lived in Aurora for sixteen years and has two children, Sabrina (age 14) and Samuel (age 9), who both attend school in East Aurora District 131. The family is complete with Steve’s daughter, Alexandria, who is a graduate of West Aurora High School. Stephanie is a proud step-grandparent to Alexandria’s sons William (age 5) and Jonathan (age 3).

The 84th Representative District contains parts of Aurora, Naperville, Montgomery and Oswego.

 

The Kifowit Family: Samuel, Stephanie, Steve, Sabrina and grandson Jonathan. The family is complete with their loyal dog: Mutsie.
