State Representative Tom Weber (R-Lake Villa) today was sworn into his third General Assembly.
“I continue to be humbled and honored to represent the great people of my district. I take great pride in representing you all down in Springfield, but rest assured it is not something I take for granted,” Rep Weber said.
Rep. Weber joined 117 other members of the 103rd Illinois House of Representatives who were sworn in at noon at the University of Illinois in Springfield before family, friends, and supporters. Rep. Weber is a lifelong Illinoisan from Lake Villa. He and his wife of over 30 years still live in his family’s old farmhouse. They have two children and several grandchildren.
“I want to thank the district for their sup“I want to thank the district for their support, but I especially want to thank my family for theirs,” Rep. Weber said. “This job takes me down to Springfield a lot, so I could not do this without it. I am truly blessed.”
The 64th District looks different than what residents are likely used to. The district boundaries changed as a result of mandatory redistricting following the 2020 census. The 64th District still consists of portions of lake and McHenry Counties, but now includes less southern portions of both and more portions towards the state border with Wisconsin. This includes all or portions of the communities of Antioch, Channel Lake, Fox Lake, Johnsburg, Lake Villa, McCullom Lake, McHenry, Richmond, Ringwood, Spring Grove, and Wonder Lake.
“If I no longer represent you, I want to say what an honor it has been and you can still reach out to my office if you need assistance,” Rep. Weber said. “To my new constituents, welcome! I hope to serve you well and faithfully in Springfield.”
