I am announcing my candidacy for Congress to represent the good people of the 5th Congressional District of the State of Illinois.
In these times of soaring foreclosures, soaring credit card rates and soaring unemployment, we need to focus and act swiftly to help our Middle Class. We truly need to stabilize our economy first, and then work on long term growth. Keys to our success will hinge on oversight, accountability and fiscal responsibility. I vow to champion the Middle Class!
Born February 13, 1961
Son of Ralph Annunzio and Carol Speros
Married to Rebecca (Bernard) Annunzio
2 Daughters Frankie Rose (9) and Joey Marie (7)
Great Nephew of the late Congressman Frank Annunzio
Directly after graduating from Steinmetz High School in Chicago (1979), Frank headed to San Diego for Basic Training and served in the United States Navy. Upon his Honorable Discharge (1982), he found employment with the Chicago Public Schools where he worked as a Janitor, a Fireman (Local 7) and ended his
18-year career as a Stationary Engineer (Local 134-134B). Frank saw an opportunity to help the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) with its "Plan for Transformation" and started working for the CHA in 2000 as the General Superintendent of Plant Operations. Today he is still with the CHA as the General Field Superintendent of Construction.
During his 30 years of Public Service, Frank has been extremely active in the community coaching children from various schools and Park District programs, raising money for organizations such as Cystic Fibrosis, St. Williams School,
St. Robert Bellarmine and Windows of Opportunity.
