Cheers to New Adventures!


This campaign is over and I'd like to take a moment to congratulate ALL the Grassroots Candidates and the established ones. I know now how much heart, courage and WORK, it is to just get our names on the ballot; let alone run a campaign.


I talked to thousands of people over the course of going door-to-door and every darn forum that we "unknowns" were invited to It has been a wonderful experience and will truly inspire my future outlook and approach to life minutes. I have loved every moment (even the hard ones). We embarked on this journey with a sense of joy and gratitude. That said, I want to THANK all my generous donors and...


NEW FRIENDS: Mark Bonne, Andy Finko (lawyer extraordinaire) , Sheri at the Homer Township Dems., Mark at the Frankfort Township Dems., Daniel Kemp (and his beautiful headshots) Kirby Birgans and his husband, Karin Norrington-Reaves (dat gal), Pat Dowell and Michael Thompson


DEAR FRIENDS: especially those who canvassed with me Ann Touhy, Linda Touhy, Tracy Carlson, my financial gurus Linda Touhy and Don Cuba


AMAZING FAMILY: Marilyn Rosner, Kathy Rosner Small, Jeannine Small, Mary Ann Rosner, Patty Rosner Oliosi, Keri Roby Heenan...AND family who donated so generously to support our campaign


ESPECIALLY my first campaign manager Tom Rosner, my Speech Writer and Wordsmith Chrise Layng, Erik Rosner, Dana Boyle Rosner, Andi Rosner, Adam Rosner and Amanda Rapp, my amazing husband and partner Danny Rosner (dis guy)

A Word From Dr. Layng Rosner

An Independent Democrat

Terre Layng
US Congress
Illinois 1st District

Being a Congressional Rep. is not my career, I’ve had that. It's time to use my executive leadership skills in Public Service.


Many have told us that this district is ‘owned’ by one constituency or another--but that’s not right. The people in our district are free to elect anyone. No one person or group can claim ownership of our government.


We are the government. From Hyde Park to Midlothian to Homer Glen to Frankfort to New Lenox to Manteno to Bourbonnais. I think there is still good in our government. People like us can make it so.

Cheers to new beginnings!
