SPRINGFIELD – State Representative Brad Stephens (R-Rosemont) took the oath of office as a member of the House of Representatives at the inauguration ceremony for the 103rd General Assembly yesterday. This began his second full term with the Illinois House of Representatives after being appointed to his position in 2019.
“It is an honor to serve the constituents of the 20th District for another General Assembly in Springfield,” said Rep. Stephens. “We are a strong district of families, hardworking individuals, and first responders committed to making our communities better places to live. I will continue to work across the aisle and with my colleagues to propel our state forward as we look beyond the trials the COVID-19 pandemic presented over the last three years.”
During the 2022 fall veto session, Speaker of the House Emanuel “Chris” Welch (D-Riverside) was re-elected Speaker of the House and Representative Tony McCombie (R-Savanna) was elected House Republican Leader.
“With last General Assembly’s redistricting process, the 20th District looks different this year, and I look forward to serving new constituents in the Chicagoland area when I’m in Springfield and around the district,” Rep. Stephens continued.
Stephens also serves as the CEO and Mayor of Rosemont, Illinois—one of the most successful municipalities in the nation. Prior to becoming mayor, he served as a member of the Board of Trustees in the Village of Rosemont for 18 years. He also served as a member of the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority and the Pace Bus Board of Directors.
The 20th District now includes portions of Norridge, Rosemont, Schiller Park, Franklin Park, Harwood Heights, River Grove, and the Chicago neighborhoods of Norwood Park, Edison Park, Belmont Heights, and Oriole Park.
