On April 6, the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) chalked up an impressive number of wins – 75 – which included 10 REALTORS®.

Across Illinois, voters chose who would represent them in city and village government, and RPAC supported the campaigns of candidates who understand the importance of the housing industry. Towns ranging in size and geography will benefit from leadership that prioritizes the role homeownership and property rights play in the local economy.  

In addition to RPAC support, Independent Expenditures (IE) were utilized to communicate our support directly to voters. 

Please check the list of hometowns and markets that follow to see where RPAC made a difference. Winning RPAC candidates are organized alphabetically by local associations and last names.
