Lobbyists for DuPage County

Lobbyists play a crucial role in ensuring the county's interests are looked out for in both Springfield and Washington, D.C. As our "eyes and ears," lobbyists help secure funding for local projects, as well as express our concerns on legislation that may adversely affect our quality of life. Throughout the year, our lobbyists are hard at work serving the County and its residents. By working together, your County Board members and our lobbyists are ensuring that DuPage County remains a great place to live, work and raise a family.
