Danklefsen’s lives in Geneva, about 40 miles west of Chicago in Illinois’ Fox River Valley, and works as a maintenance manager for a property management company.

“I do not have a political resume, but I understand the challenges families face with increasing tax burdens and the uncertainty of the job market,” Danklefsen says on his campaign Web site. “I am asking for the opportunity to represent the 14th District taxpayers in Washington D.C. I will stand up for responsible taxation, a balanced budget, and job growth.”
