SPRINGFIELD, IL—Newly elected State Senator Seth Lewis (R-Bartlett) was sworn into office on Wednesday as the representative voice of Illinois’ newly-drawn 24th Senate District in DuPage and suburban Cook Counties. Sen. Lewis took his oath of office at a noon ceremony held at the Old Illinois State Capitol in Springfield.
“It’s a distinct honor to join the Senate Republican Caucus,” said Sen. Lewis. “I will be a strong voice for fiscal responsibility, ethics, and government transparency, and look forward to reaching across the aisle to find bipartisan solutions to Illinois’ most pressing problems.”
Sen. Lewis joins the Senate Republican Caucus after serving for the last two years in the Illinois House of Representatives, where he is credited for with passing Cal’s Law, which ensures children diagnosed with cancer have greater access to critical diagnostic testing, and for creating the State’s first Indian American Advisory Council, which celebrates and brings a legislative voice to Illinois’ Indian American community.
“My district office is up and running in Carol Stream, and my talented staff is ready to hit the ground running to provide assistance to all residents of the 24th District,” added Sen. Lewis. “In addition to providing stellar constituent service, I will host a variety of community outreach events so I can meet my new constituents and learn about their priorities and concerns.”
Sen. Lewis is one of 19 Republicans who will serve in the Senate during the 103rd General Assembly. The new 24th Senate District includes all or portions of Addison, Bartlett, Bloomingdale, Elk Grove Village, Carol Stream, Hanover Park, Itasca, Roselle, Naperville, Warrenville, West Chicago, Wheaton, Winfield, and Wood Dale in DuPage and suburban Cook Counties.
