AURORA — Although she leaked the news last week, Alderman Stephanie Kifowitmade her campaign for state representative official Thursday evening in front of about 30friends and family at Basil’s Greek Dining in Aurora.Kifowit, alderman of Aurora’s 3rd Ward, is running for the Illinois House of Representatives in a newly created district on the city’s East Side.Kifowit will run for the Democratic nomination in the 84th District, which includes mostof the far East Side of Aurora. The district was added because of the huge populationgrowth since the 2000 census. There is no incumbent living in the district.The creation of the new legislative district was Kifowit’s motivation to run for IllinoisHouse now. Kifowit has been an alderman for eight years.“The new district is part of my ward, and I thought it was a great opportunity for me,”Kifowit said.If elected, Kifowit said she would focus on getting the state’s finances back in order.“The reality is Illinois is on the brink of financial ruin. You can’t sugarcoat that,” shesaid. “The number one component we need to (attract) jobs is financial stability.”Kifowit said that on top of ensuring the state has a balanced budget, she said she wouldwork to make sure Illinois is paying its bills to businesses, schools and non-profits ontime.
 
 “If you do business with the state, you’re supposed to get paid. That’s how it works,” shesaid.Kifowit said her experience as a veteran makes her different than other politicians, andshe would bring fresh ideas to the Illinois House. She served in the Marine Corps for four years.“I believe I went to the greatest leadership academy in the world,” she said of her time inthe Marine Corps.Although the district is new, Kifowit said she is gearing up for a competitive race. She isthe third person to express interest in the Democratic nomination. Alex Arroyo, former chairman of the Aurora Township Democrats, is planning to run.
Former Auroraaldermanic candidate Matt Harrington is considering a run.
“No one is going to work harder on the campaign trail or for the constituency,” she said.Kifowit has a bachelor’s degree in political science and master’s degree in publicadministration, both from Northern Illinois University.She has lived in Aurora for 16 years. She ran for mayor of Aurora in 2010 and finishedthirid.
