“In August 2014, Chris Nybo was appointed to serve Illinois’ 24th District as their State Senator. As former State Representative and Elmhurst Alderman, Nybo brings valuable experience and expertise to the legislature. While in the Illinois House of Representatives from 2011-2013, Nybo successfully led efforts expanding the availability of life-saving allergy medicine for school children (known as the Epi-Pen Law), prohibiting politicians from putting their names and faces on taxpayer funded signs (known as the Blagojevich Billboard Ban) and reforming workers’ compensation so that it’s easier to do business in Illinois.
Born in Elmhurst, Chris is a lifelong resident of the western suburbs. He graduated from Fenwick High School, Dartmouth College, and University of Chicago Law School. He is an active supporter of the Ray Graham Association for People With Disabilities, the York Senior Center, Elmhurst Youth Baseball, and Immaculate Conception Parish. These are just a few ways in which Chris has dedicated himself to community and public service throughout his life, a commitment for which the United States Government selected him as a Harry S. Truman Scholar.
In his legal profession, Chris assists small and large businesses on a variety of employment matters, and he has been honored on the 2011 and 2010 Illinois Rising Stars list featuring outstanding young lawyers in the State of Illinois. He currently lives in Elmhurst with his wife Faye and their three children, Connor (10), Olivia (7) and Allison (4). They are active members of Immaculate Conception Parish.
Why Chris Nybo Stands for Children
“I stand for children because the children of Illinois are the future of Illinois. Children deserve access to a quality education to help them lay the groundwork to achieve their greatest potential, become active citizens, and pursue fulfilling careers. I look forward to working with Stand for Children to close the achievement gap, promote education accountability, and ensure that we are giving our children the best opportunities that we can.”
Why We Endorse Chris Nybo
Chris Nybo is an independent voice for reform. During his short time in the legislature, he routinely put good policy ahead of political expediency, and we look forward to working with him again to improve education for all children.” Link to Endorsement Page.
