I'm Laura Faver Dias, and I'm running for State Representative in the 62nd District. As your state representative, I will be a powerful advocate for everyone in our community. From fighting for better education for children to demanding better resources for older adults, I will stand up for the needs of residents in every corner of the 62nd District. As a mother of premature twins, former public-school teacher, and a current Grayslake Village Trustee, my life is focused on service to others. Dias, 40, who was first elected to the Grayslake Village Board of Trustees in April, 2022 said representing the communities of the district in the general assembly will give her an opportunity accomplish what she is currently doing for more people.

Growing up in Newburgh, Indiana, Dias moved to Chicago to teach in the public schools after graduating from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Studies Education. She also has a Master of Arts in Bicultural Education, and English as a second language from Wayne State University.

Dias moved to Grayslake five years ago to raise her family. She taught social studies for 10 years in Chicago, first at Englewood High School and then at Westinghouse High School. She is also a small-business owner.

I am running for office because I care deeply about our community and the future of our state. No matter what Springfield throws my way, I will always stay committed and accountable to the needs of the residents and families here at home.

As I have my whole life, when life gets hard, I roll up my sleeves and work harder.
