Marie Newman is results-driven and progressive. As a small-business owner, entrepreneur, national nonprofit executive, author and human rights advocate, Marie Newman has spent her life embracing challenges and working with others on solutions. Marie is running for Congress to stand up for the values we share in the 3rd District: fighting for working families, growing and protecting small businesses, promoting education and training programs that lead to real jobs, pushing for Healthcare-For-All, protecting Social Security, worker’s rights, women’s healthcare, veterans, and Medicare. Born in Beverly and raised in Palos Park, Marie graduated from Carl Sandburg High School and the University of Wisconsin. Marie is running a solutions-based campaign focused on residents of the 3rd District — relying on volunteers instead of party insiders.
