The Republican candidate in the 56th House District, who lost to Rep. Michelle Mussman (D-Schaumburg) last year, told the North Cook News that along with introducing herself on neighborhood walks, she will continue to be present at community events at the Schaumburg Township District Library, the Schaumburg Township Mental Health Committee, Schaumburg Township Historical Society, Church of the Holy Spirit and Rotary Club of Schaumburg/Hoffman Estates.

Bernas, who garnered 44.7 percent of the vote in 2016 against Mussman in District 56, which includes Schaumburg, Hanover Park, Roselle and Elk Grove Village, said a fundraiser is planned for Dec. 13.

“Last election cycle was the first time I ran for state representative, so it was nice to connect with neighbors again while circulating my petitions,” Bernas said. “I received words of encouragement and many said they were happy to see I was running again because it gave them hope for our state to see I wasn’t backing down.”
