Natalie Manley was elected State Representative of the 98th District, the first political office she ever ran for, in November 2012. She is a Certified Public Accountant specializing in tax preparation, auditing, and budgeting for individuals, businesses and governments, working to make them more efficient while protecting taxpayer dollars.

As a young woman, Natalie worked two jobs to put herself through college and provide an opportunity for herself and her daughter. After graduating from Joliet Junior College and then from the University of St. Francis with a bachelor's degree in business administration, Natalie became a Certified Public Accountant.

As a legislator, Natalie will draw upon her strong financial background to make fiscal responsibility in state government a priority. With her experience and expertise as an auditor, she plans to review the state budget line by line to help eliminate duplicative service, unnecessary spending, and fraud while protecting the state's most crucial programs. To help address the state's budget challenges, Natalie supports making it harder for lawmakers to increase their own pay, she supports pay cuts for politicians, and she supports ending free health care coverage for retired politicians and judges.

Natalie's legislative priorities include restoring the state's fiscal health, improving the economic climate for businesses and job seekers, and rewarding business investment in job creation. Natalie is a strong proponent of education and will be an advocate for affordable tuition, student loans, and financial planning for college.

An active community volunteer, Natalie has been involved with the Joliet Chamber of Commerce, United Way of Will County, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Will and Grundy County, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and many other non-profits.

As the president of her condo association, Natalie understands how homeowners have struggled with declining property values. She supports legislation freezing property taxes when home values decline, and she will back efforts to reduce foreclosures, helping more families stay in their own homes and keeping communities safe.

The 98th District is located entirely within Will County and contains portions of Bolingbrook, Crest Hill, Joliet, Lockport, Plainfield and Romeoville.
