SPRINGFIELD—State Sen. Chris Lauzen (R—Aurora) was sworn in as a member of the 97th General Assembly on Jan. 12. Lauzen took the oath of office with other senators who won their seats in the November elections.
“It is an honor to represent the people of the 25th Senate District,” Lauzen said. “I will work in the 97th General Assembly for constituent priorities that I have worked for in previous General Assemblies: pension reform, cutting government waste, and encouraging a positive business climate in Illinois.”
Lauzen, who was first elected to the Senate in 1992, was joined for the swearing-in ceremony by his wife, Sarah.
“I am eager to get to work repealing the tax increase and reforming state government to best serve the citizens of the 25th Senate District,” Lauzen said, referring to tax increase legislation that was passed in the final hours of the previous General Assembly. “We had some success in the 96th General Assembly with major pension reforms. I will continue to build on the success we had and work to fix the major mistakes of the previous General Assembly.”
The 25th Senate District comprises portions of Kane, Kendall and LaSalle counties.
