There’s no substitute for prior experience in public office, which Ramey has.

Wayne Township Supervisor Randy Ramey is our pick in the Republican primary for this west suburban district.

There’s no substitute for prior experience in public office, which Ramey has. He was elected township supervisor in 2017 and before that, served in the Illinois House from 2005 to 2013, representing the 55th District out of West Chicago.

In 2012, Ramey made a run for the Illinois Senate but lost the GOP primary in the wake of a high-profile DUI arrest. Meanwhile, he’d followed in the footsteps of his powerful stepfather, former Senate President James “Pate” Philip, as chairman of the DuPage County GOP.

Ramey is endorsed over Michael E. Camerer and Alfredo Manzo. Neither responded to our requests to complete a candidate questionnaire.
