Wheeler Takes Oath for 100th General Assembly; Stands Ready to Reform Financial System

Today, Representative Barbara Wheeler (R-Crystal Lake) took the Oath of Office for her third term in the Illinois House of Representatives. Wheeler and her colleagues took their respective oaths today in Springfield, ringing in the 100th General Assembly.

“It is very humbling to take the Oath of Office and I want to thank the people of the 64th District for giving me another opportunity to serve you in Springfield,” said Wheeler. “I’m proud that in the last General Assembly, we were able to pass life-saving DUI reform, improve protections for victims of human trafficking and help provide some local property tax relief, but we all know that we have a lot more to do to fix Illinois.”

Wheeler continued, “It is no secret we need to change course in Illinois. It won’t be easy, but with a new session and the willingness of rank-and-file members to build on discussions from last year, I think it can be done. It is clear that Illinoisans want us to reform our financial system and move forward, we have to do it. I stand ready to work with any colleague willing to accomplish this goal.”
