About Barrett Davie
Barrett represents the success of the American dream.
His mom, a Polish immigrant who came through Ellis Island in the 50’s, and his dad, a Chicago policeman for 35 years, raised Barrett and his siblings on Chicago's southwest side.
He grew up with love in their house and encouragement to work hard and make a better future. His eyes were opened to the opportunities available in this country and he was taught to believe there was no better place to be raised than right here in Illinois.
Through school, the law, business, non-profit work, his marriage, fatherhood, his church, and the good fortune of having an extensive community of friends, Barrett feels blessed and is grateful. Barrett embraces his parents' tenet, to whom much is given, much is expected.
Issues Concerning Illinois Families
Three main themes will drive my approach to leading in the Illinois Senate: (1) building bi-partisan coalitions of leaders willing to boldly address our State's most pressing challenges; (2) implementing a strategic approach to bringing jobs and investment to Illinois; and (3) strengthening and empowering the people in our local communities.
