Ken Mejia-Beal for Illinois State Representative District 42

As a long-time resident, community activist, and a leader in the financial sector, Ken Meija-Beal has spent the better part of his life helping others in his community.

As a young professional in DuPage County, Ken worked as a mortgage manager, helping citizens affected by the housing crisis receive a hand up through the government-sponsored HARP program. But his work in the southwest suburban community did not stop there. As an activist and community organizer, he has experience in discussing affordable housing, climate justice, and affordable healthcare with elected members of the Illinois General Assembly. As a member of the Advisory Panel of Equality Illinois and the DuPage NAACP, Ken understands the socioeconomic struggles faced by all communities, and has dedicated a large part of his career towards alleviating these disparities in common-sense, bipartisan ways.

Throughout his life as a citizen, one thing remains constant: Ken enjoys the work of reaching out across the aisle and communicating with community members and leaders to seek practical solutions to difficult problems. With a background in finance and his finger on the pulse of his community, Ken recognizes that citizens in Illinois are evacuating in droves due to the ever-increasing property taxes, and he recognizes that this problem will persist unless there is an independent voice in Springfield.

That’s why Ken Mejia-Beal has decided to run for the Illinois House of Representatives in his own 42nd District.
