GENEVA – State Rep. Dan Ugaste, R-Geneva, was sworn into office Jan. 9 to serve the 65th District which includes Batavia, Geneva, St. Charles, Elgin, South Elgin, Hampshire, Huntley and Pingree Grove, the legislator announced in a news release.

Legislators attended an inaugural ceremony at the University of Illinois in Springfield, marking the official start of the state’s 101st General Assembly.

“I am ready to get to work to help get our state back on track, and take on the challenges and obstacles that come along with that goal,” Ugaste stated in the release. “I am committed to producing the best legislation to accomplish that for our Illinois residents and my constituents at home in the 65th District.”

Ugaste was elected to the seat formerly held by Steve Andersson, also of Geneva, after Andersson decided not to seek re-election.

Ugaste is an attorney who specializes in worker’s compensation defense with the Nyhan, Bambrick, Kinzie and Lowry Law Firm in Chicago.

Ugaste and his wife Denise have been residents of Geneva since 1994, where they raised three daughters.
