Small business owner and sixth-generation Kendall County resident Keith Wheeler was sworn in for a third term as state representative of the 50th District, which serves portions of Kane and Kendall Counties, on Jan. 9, joining all 118 members of the Illinois House of Representatives for the inauguration of the 101st General Assembly.
“Restoring Illinois’ competitiveness and expanding opportunity for Fox Valley families is my top priority,” Representative Wheeler said in a statement. “We can achieve our goal of creating Illinois jobs for Illinois families by working together across party lines to embrace the needed reforms that will get government off the backs of the small business men and women who produce most of the new jobs across the state.”
Rep. Wheeler has also been chosen to retain his position as House Republican Conference Chairperson, a leadership post he was first appointed to in July 2018. The Conference Chairperson presides over GOP caucus meetings and helps to guide policy initiatives through the legislative process.
