Rep. Stephens Launches 20th District Monthly Small Business Spotlight

CHICAGO – Starting in August, State Representative Brad Stephens (R-Rosemont) is launching his monthly 20th District Small Business Spotlight. This will recognize 20th District small businesses and their contributions to our communities. Winners will be recognized on Rep. Stephens’ website, on social media, and with local media.

“Small businesses are integral to our 20th District communities and make up the life and character of our Main Streets and business corridors,” said Rep. Stephens. “After the difficulties of COVID-19 that small businesses had to face, this is a great opportunity to show our appreciation and promote patronizing these establishments all year round. Whether it’s your favorite coffeeshop to grab a cup before work, the bakery that always makes your birthday cake, or the manufacturer down the road making products for your everyday use, nominate your favorite local business today!”

Businesses will be recognized monthly on a rolling basis. Businesses not selected for one month will be considered in future months. Individuals can nominate a small business by visiting and clicking “Small Business Spotlight.” Only 20th District businesses will be considered, and a map of the 20th District can be found online at

Individuals can nominate a 20th District small business at any time and call (773) 444-0611 with questions about the process.
