As a member of Congress, Brad is focused on building an thriving economy that works for all of us, and ensuring every child has the opportunity for a quality education and a rising standard of living. He knows that our communities are stronger when small businesses invest and grow, our environment is healthy, and people are working together for a better future.
Brad is committed to tackling the challenges we face as a nation, including protecting Medicare and Social Security, improving rather than repealing the Affordable Care Act, and passing sensible gun safety legislation.
Prior to being elected to Congress, Brad spent more than 20 years in business and management consulting, helping large and family-owned businesses alike address the challenges of today’s economy and plan for the future. His professional experience has allowed him to see first-hand the challenges small businesses face when trying to hire new workers and grow their company, as well as the effect thriving small businesses can have on a community’s overall economy.
At home, Brad has deep ties to the community, including service with organizations such as the Jewish United Fund, the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Waukegan Public Library Foundation, B.E.S.T., the Coalition to Reduce Recidivism, and the Civic Leadership Foundation.
Brad earned a BS in industrial engineering and his MBA from Northwestern University.
Brad and his wife, Julie, have been residents of Deerfield for more than 25 years, where they created a home, built their careers, and, most importantly, raised two sons, Adam and Daniel.
One of Brad’s favorite pastimes was coaching his sons’ baseball and soccer teams for over 12 years. He now enjoys exploring the bike trails throughout the district.
