Biography

Julie Fox is your neighbor. She grew up in Barrington and has been your neighbor here in West Dundee for 17 years.

She shops in town – just like you do. She supports local causes – just like you do. She pays her property taxes – just like you do. And she cares deeply about the future of your community – just like you do.

Julie is running for West Dundee Trustee and asks for your support.

She holds Bachelor of Science degrees in both Biochemistry and Biology and became a Certified Public Accountant in 1995. For the last 20 years she has worked as the Controller for a family-owned international chemical manufacturing company headquartered in Northbrook.

In 2001 she won election to the Dundee Township Library Board and was subsequently re-elected in 2005 for an additional term. While a member of the Board, she served on the Budget Committee and the Operations Committee from 2000 to 2005, and also served as Treasurer from 2003 to 2005.

Julie first became involved in local politics in 1995 when she co-founded the Fox Valley Libertarian Party (FVLP). She subsequently served as President and Treasurer of the Coalition for Accountability in Public Education (CAPE) from 1997 to 1999. CAPE was instrumental in the defeat of four District 300 school tax referenda during that time.

In 2012, she ran for Kane County Auditor but was removed from the ballot by the Illinois Board of Elections for not running as part of a slate. Serving as the “injured party”, a lawsuit was filed on her behalf by the Libertarian Party of Illinois. That lawsuit resulted in overturning the only law in the U.S. requiring a Third Party to run a slate of candidates for both county and state-wide offices.

Julie formed the West Dundee Watchdogs in 2016, working with local residents and businesses to convince the West Dundee Board not to pass the proposed 14% property tax increase on downtown businesses.
