My name is Tim Wolfe and I am running for the US House of Representatives in the Illinois 9th Congressional District. I would like to use this opportunity to tell you who I am, what I have done in my career and why I decided to run for public office and set aside several years of my life in order to serve my country in this time of deep financial distress.

I am from Bloomington, IL where I was born in 1953. I went to college at Illinois Wesleyan University, which is in Bloomington, and received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration in 1975. I played football and wrestled while at Wesleyan. I received a second bachelor’s degree from Illinois State University in 1978 in Accounting. And in 2003, I earned a Masters Degree in Taxation from Northern Illinois University. I am also a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®)

I am married and live in Arlington Heights with my wife and one of my two daughters, who is attending college. My other daughter has graduated from college and has been employed since her graduation. We have lived in Arlington Heights for approximately 30 years.

I have had my own tax and accounting practice for over 20 years in Mt. Prospect, where I primarily do tax work for individuals and businesses as well as accounting for businesses.

I am running for public office, for the first time, because I think this country is in a financial mess which is a direct result of a lack of accountability and integrity of many of our public officials. As a result of our financial problems, there are not enough jobs being created to employ everyone who wants to work which is driving more dependence on the Federal government and more spending.

What do you think? Aren’t you afraid for your future and for that of your kids and grandkids? The differences between my opponent, Jan Schakowsky, and I are clear and distinct. She is an extreme liberal who believes in growing government, equality of outcomes and redistribution of wealth. Please help me to help you, your children and your grandchildren by helping me to defeat Schakowsky. Consider writing a check to help pay for campaign expenses. Volunteer some of your time to help make phone calls or a number of other tasks required in a major Congressional campaign. Consider having a fund raising event. (Please go to the Get Involved pages.) Let’s work together to make tomorrow a brighter and more prosperous day in America. Thank you.
