Statewide run for Brady
State Representative Dan Brady has announced a run for Illinois Secretary of State.
Brady unveiled his platform with stops around the state, which is centered around creating a Secretary of State office that accelerates growth.
“I am running for Secretary of State to build the long-needed foundation our state needs to thrive. I will focus on partnering with the brightest innovators and technology experts this state has to offer, addressing not only service efficiency, but issues of cyber-security and identity protection,” said Brady. “The Secretary of State office serves as the backbone for our state, without it our economy and government would not function. But simply functioning shouldn’t be good enough.”
Brady has served as a State Representative since 2001 helping to pass legislation which provided funding for infrastructure projects and schools and included tax incentives encouraging companies to invest in Illinois.
A resident of Bloomington, Brady is a licensed funeral director and embalmer and partner in the Kibler-Brady-Ruestman Funeral Home. He served as McLean County Coroner from 1992-2000 and was named to the Illinois House Republican Leadership Team in 2003 and named Deputy Minority Leader in 2017.
Brady and his wife, Teri, have two children.
