About Deanne

I was born and raised in Villa Park, graduating from Willowbrook High School.  I received my undergraduate degree in Political Science and Chemistry (Biology minor), from Boston University.  My law degree (with honors) is from the George Washington University.  I have always been passionate about science, and am thrilled to use that knowledge in my private sector work.

I moved to Elmhurst to raise my family.  My husband’s business is local in Elmhurst; and my children attend Elmhurst public schools.  I’ve built a successful private-sector business defending people, including against aggressive, well-funded opponents.

If you want to see an independent, proven reformer down in Springfield, Vote for me, Deanne Marie Mazzochi, as your State Representative.

On the Issues

Accountability:

Spending and accounting allegations raised must be transparently resolved.

An objective perspective:

Springfield needs some fresh faces to review current spending habits; tackle problems; and smart legislation.

Protect your assets:

The public deserves an advocate ensuring their taxes are not needlessly raised; and their tax dollars are spent ethically, transparently, and in support of initiatives with strong bipartisan support.

I believe in as much local control over your tax dollars as possible.

As a lawyer and a scientist, my politics align with the Republican party because over the long haul, the practical evidence confirms that governments that adhere to principles of incentivizing self-reliance; fiscal responsibility; and local charity deliver the best—and most just—results.
