Don Potoczny for DuPage County Treasurer


Our growing community needs strong, principled leadership to create the future that our families need to thrive. The days of politicians walking into office without opposition are passed. Public servants must be accountable to the people through fair and free elections. I have served our nation overseas for many years. I look forward to continuing my public service as your county treasurer. 

When I retired from the army, we decided to settle here in this amazing area. My amazing wife, Didem, and son are relieved to be in our “final home”. Alexander is delighted to have the puppy that he’s always dreamed of.

I’m honored to join a long line of dedicated leaders in our community that has made this county the country’s best place to raise a family. 

But I’ve learned along the way that we can always do better. I’ll never stop fighting to ensure that everyone is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. I know we can do better and I want to be part of the solution.

In these uncertain and complex times, we need leaders that we can trust. Leaders with unfaltering integrity and dedication to choosing the hard right over the easy wrong.



Why I am a Democrat

I believe in helping others find their voice and cast their vote.

I believe working women and men deserve a square deal. All of them, every day.

I believe that all of us have times when we appreciate the outstretched hand of a neighbor. Because we’re all in this together.

I believe that some problems are too big for one person, one family, or one town. But there’s nothing we can’t do together.

I believe in looking forward, not back. The good old days weren’t perfect, and the future will be much better for all of us.

Why I am running

The county treasurer can do more than manage the county’s books. I’d like the office to be a platform to protect families, promote small businesses, and educate consumers.
