Democratic ReMap Forces Run in Senate Primary
LOMBARD – Chris Nybo, State Representative from Elmhurst (R-41) filed petitions early this morning as a candidate in the Republican Primary in the newly drawn 24th Senate District. Nybo said all of his 2,800 signatures were collected door–to–door from neighbors, friends and supporters in every town in the district, which includes all or parts of Clarendon Hills, Darien, Downers Grove, Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn, Hinsdale, Lisle, Lombard, Oak Brook, Oakbrook Terrace, Western Springs, Westmont, Wheaton, and Willowbrook.
“The map that the Democrats drew in DuPage County purposefully placed Republican colleagues in the same district to diminish Republican presence in the General Assembly. In the 41st District that I currently represent, I would be forced to run against Representative Patti Bellock. We need more female representation in Springfield so I would not run against her under those circumstances. Family comes first, so I would not move my young family away from their friends, school and our church into another district simply to advance a political career,” Nybo stated.
“Filing for State Senate is the only way I can continue to represent the majority of people in the 41st District. I was gratified that so many friends and neighbors strongly urged me to run for State Senate. The hard working taxpayers and families of Illinois need a strong and reliable conservative voice in Springfield, and I would be honored to continue serving them,” Nybo said.
“When so many Illinois citizens are unemployed or underemployed, we must end the anti-business climate and policies that continue to drive jobs to other states. I’m committed to continuing the fight for budget discipline and ethics reform in State government. It is for the people of this district, that I am honored to serve, that I wish to return to Springfield,” Nybo concluded.
Chris Nybo lives in Elmhurst with his wife Faye and three children. He is an active member of Immaculate Conception Parish. Chris is a graduate of Fenwick High School, a Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude graduate of Dartmouth College and received his Juris Doctor from the University of Chicago Law School, where he was awarded the Harry S. Truman Scholarship for Public Service.
