About Us

John Burros has led a diverse life as an activist, union member, investor, and actor. As a member of Northside Democracy for America, John has knocked on thousands of doors for local candidates, and as an environmental activist he has helped organize several forums to promote the use of solar and wind energy. John has worked at the Palmer House and other well-known Chicago institutions for almost twenty years as a banquet server and is a member of the service union UNITE HERE Local 1.

As the Illinois State Representative for the 9th District John Burros will fight hard to ensure that the people of Illinois can enjoy the benefits of a clean government and a clean environment. After such a long string of rampant corruption it is no surprise that many people are discouraged and alienated by their elected representatives. However, through fixing campaign finance laws to make it more difficult to buy pocket politicians and enacting simple reforms we can see a stronger, healthier state government.

The quality of our lives can be improved by cleaning up the air and the ground we walk on. In the 9th District alone dirty coal power plants have been responsible for hundreds of untimely deaths and countless chronic health problems. By shifting our focus away from such toxic sources of power and looking toward the future of renewable energy we can both clean up the environment around us and create new jobs in a new market for the people of Illinois.

The time has come to restore Illinoisans' faith in their government, to bring honesty and integrity back into the realm of public administration. There is no better time to fight for our future than now. Join us and help bring a clean government and clean environment to Illinois today!

John Burros, fighting for you!
