About Heidi Henry

I have lived in the 75th district since 1990 with my husband, a retired IBEW member, and my two children who are all grown up and making their mama proud. My husband and I operate a commercial horse farm with success at state and national levels. I actively support local businesses and my community. I’ve worked with a variety of area organizations including 4H, FFA, the Democratic party, and Ottawa and Grundy Indivisible groups. My family and I are active members of the Christ Episcopal Church of Ottawa.

The decision to run this time came after some long late night talks with my husband of 40 years, Stan. As recent “empty nesters” we had dreams to travel about the country – then COVID hit and we were stuck here on the farm.

When it was brought to my attention that the Republican Party was running a FAR RIGHT candidate, I knew I needed to “take point” again and protect my community.

The women of Illinois deserve someone to stand for their rights!

The LGBTQ+ in our community needed someone to stand for their rights!

People with the vast ideologies and faiths in our community deserve to have equal footing in Illinois.

I am here for them, ALL of them!

Faith believer or non believer or somewhere in between, I stand your ground with you and for you! We cannot give up nor surrender our Illinois and US Constitutional rights of the separation of church and state. Of Religious Freedom. Of all are created equal! I was a long time Sunday school teacher, yet I would never EVER force my beliefs on someone else. Especially NOT while serving as an elected official! I have read both the Constitutions and the Bible. I get the differences!
