Stella reaching out to 11th Congressional District voters with fundraiser in Burr Ridge
Nick Stella, who is running in the goip primary in the 11th Congressional District, will be taking his message of more jobs and a better economy and health care system to the voters when he hosts a fundraising event at the Capri Ristorante in Burr Ridge on March 8.
Festivities for the two-hour event kick off at 6 p.m. with Platinum Level sponsorships of up to $2,700 being offered.
“It is an event for supporters to support Nick’s efforts to help get his message to the voters,” spokesperson Dennis Cook told the Will County Gazette. “In the future, Nick will be hosting free coffees with the voters across the district to listen to their concerns about the issues and the changes that the people would like to see in (Washington) D.C.”
The 49-year-old former Downers Grove Township GOP precinct committeeman is vying for the seat held by U.S. Rep. Bill Foster (D-IL) on a platform of more jobs and a better economy and health care system.
A cardiologist by profession, Stella is also on record with his plan of changing the “politics as usual” culture to an atmosphere where lawmakers are more genuinely concerned about the needs of the people they are elected to represent.
“We need to bring more good high-paying jobs into the 11th District,” he previously told the Will County Gazette. “To do this, business must be cultivated and allowed to thrive by freeing them from overly burdensome regulations and taxes. We have had a good start with the recent tax reforms, but there is a long way to go. Simplifying regulations and streamlining government’s role in business operations will boost the opportunity for entrepreneurship to flourish.”
Stella has also made the issue of health care a part of his platform, arguing that the U.S. health care system is currently broken and the only remedy lies in repealing and replacing the Affordable Healthcare Act.
“Comprehensive reform of the health care delivery system is needed to provide care more efficiently and in a more economical manner,” he said. “We must strive to improve the delivery of health care in order to assure no child wants for care, no worker is trapped in an unwanted job, and that the unemployed and elderly are provided affordable quality care.”
Besides the Platinum Level, other sponsorships for the Capri Ristorante event include the Gold Sponsor ($1,000), Silver Sponsor ($500) and Bronze Sponsor ($250). Individual tickets are also available for $100.
