Illinois’s newest state senator was sworn in August 6. Senator Chris Nybo of Elmhurst took the oath of office to represent the 24th Senate District.
Senator Nybo was appointed to replace outgoing Senator Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale, who resigned to become chairman of the Chicago-area Regional Transportation Authority.
“It’s a great honor to have been selected to be the new 24th District Senator, and I look forward to representing the constituents in the fine tradition of my predecessor, Senator Kirk Dillard,” Senator Nybo said. “Our state is in need of serious leadership and reform. I pledge to be that voice in Springfield.”
