Martwick inaugurated to Senate

SPRINGFIELD — Improving schools, bettering working conditions for teachers and first responders, and providing tax relief for the middle class are top priorities for State Senator Robert Martwick, who was sworn into his second full term Wednesday.

“On this day I’m reminded of the immense responsibility to protect the interests and needs of my community, as well as the needs of the state,” said Martwick (D-Chicago). “It is with great anticipation that I continue my mission to create opportunities for the middle class, give a voice to people who do not have one, and to never forget the importance of the trust put in me.”

Martwick begins his second full term as a senator after his appointment to represent the 10th district in 2019. The 10th District includes the northwest Chicago Neighborhoods of Schiller Park, Norridge, and many more.

“I am inspired by my successes of the past, including creating an elected school board for the Chicago public schools, protecting working families from companies that would take advantage of them, protecting sensitive data for school children, and protecting the rights of women,” said Martwick. “That past work inspires me to keep doing the hard work to ensure Illinois is the best state it can be.”
