Scientist Sean Casten is running for US Congress to bring policy to Washington that is based on facts – not fear.

Sign up now for the latest updates about the campaign.

Sean Casten stands apart from every candidate for Congress in Illinois’ 6th District.  He is a respected scientist, engineer, entrepreneur and clean energy leader – as well as a dedicated husband and father.  Sean is uniquely qualified to address some of the most difficult issues that we face.

Sean has undergraduate degrees in molecular biology and biochemistry and master’s degrees in engineering management and biochemical engineering which helped inform his career in science and business.  Sean will help bring critical thinking and thoughtful decision making back to Washington, where currently only five Members of Congress identify as scientists.

For two decades, running his own companies and advising others, Sean has been at the forefront of discovering innovative ways to make reducing carbon emissions a successful business strategy.

Sean understands the critical need to rebuild our infrastructure and promote economic growth.  As a husband and father, he also knows that nothing terrifies families more than the thought of their health care being jeopardized by the massive cuts supported by Trump and Roskam.  He will fight to keep Medicare and Medicaid safe for future generations and fight any proposals that would result in a single Illinois resident losing healthcare.
