State Senator Don DeWitte (R-St. Charles) has been appointed to serve on the Illinois Senate Republican Caucus’ leadership team. On Tuesday, January 5, Leader-Designate Dan McConchie selected DeWitte to serve as Assistant Republican Leader.
“The Senate Republican Caucus has a unique opportunity to be the voice of change that so many Illinoisans are demanding,” said Sen. DeWitte. “I look forward to continued engagement in that process and am eager to get back to work in Springfield on the many issues facing our state.”
As a member of the Senate Republican leadership team, DeWitte will serve as a close advisor to the Leader and the Caucus as a whole.
“Sen. DeWitte’s combination of public service and private sector experience grant him unique insight into the great problems we are taking on in Illinois,” said Illinois Senate GOP Leader-Designate Dan McConchie. “He has shown himself to be a leader, not just in our caucus, but throughout the General Assembly on transportation issues that are so key to his constituents’ quality of life and economic growth in Illinois. I look forward to working with him in his new role as Assistant Republican Leader to help bring more jobs and opportunities to people throughout our state.”
The appointment will take effect at the start of the 102nd General Assembly, which is scheduled to begin Wednesday, January 13.
