Stephanie Kifowit proudly served her country in the United States Marine Corps, and served the residents of the City of Aurora as Alderman for over nine years. Now, as full-time State Representative of the 84th District, she serves the residents of Aurora, Montgomery, Naperville, and Oswego.
Representative Kifowit has a record of fighting for Veterans, seniors and the most vulnerable in our community. She has made it a priority to introduce and support legislation that would assist Veterans and help restore integrity to state government. During her tenure, she has passed legislation to lower Veteran suicide, reduce property taxes, and provide services for the elderly, disabled, and children.
As a former financial advisor, Representative Kifowit helped families make the best long-term decisions for their futures. She now brings that experience to Springfield, and is a leader in ensuring that the State of Illinois has a balanced and responsible budget each year. Because of this determination, for the first time in over 20 years the state of Illinois has received six (6) credit upgrades.
Representative Kifowit was the only state representative to challenge long-serving Speaker of the House Michael Madigan on October 1, 2020. Her efforts lead to additional members denouncing his speakership and resulted in a new speaker of the House for the Illinois House of Representatives for the 102nd General Assembly.
Representative Kifowit is a proud alumna of Northern Illinois University and graduated with a B.S. in Political Science and a Masters of Public Administration. She is a wife and mother, who understands the struggles of working families. Stephanie and her husband Steve, an Army Veteran, have two children, Sabrina and Samuel. Samuel is on active duty serving in the United States Navy, stationed in Japan on the USS Ralph Johnson.
The family is complete with Steve's daughter, Alexandria, her husband William, and two grandchildren, William and Jonathan. After living in Aurora for 18 years, they currently reside in Oswego.
