This month's Legislative Brew event features State Senator Don DeWitte, recently appointed to fill the remainder of the term of former Sen. Karen McConnaughay on Tuesday, October 16 from 8:30 to 9:30 am at the Chamber office, 31 S. Grove.
Sponsored by AT&T, you will have a chance to catch up over coffee with Sen. DeWitte, ask your questions and mix and mingle with other Chamber members all in an informal setting. Seating is limited so reservations are necessary to attend.
DeWitte is the State Senator for the 33rd Senate District of Illinois and has served in this role since his appointment in September 2018. He currently serves as the Minority Spokesperson for the Senate Transportation Committee and as a member on the Appropriations II, Education, Energy, Revenue and Gaming Committees.
Prior to his appointment to the Illinois State Senate, Don was the St. Charles Mayor from 2005 to 2013, and a St. Charles alderman from 1993 to 2015. Most recently, Don served on the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Board representing Kane County for the past five years.
Don attended Elgin Community College and the University of Illinois at Springfield before beginning a four decades-long career in the building materials industry, serving in various positions with local and national manufacturers, primarily in kitchen design and sales.
Don and his wife, Diane, have been married 34 years and have two children.
Illinois’ 33rd Senate District is in the northwest Chicago suburbs and includes all or part of Algonquin, Batavia, Carpentersville, Crystal Lake, East Dundee, Elgin, Geneva, Gilberts, Hampshire, Huntley, Lake in the Hills, Lakewood, Pingree Grove, Sleepy Hollow, South Elgin, St. Charles, Wayne and West Dundee.
The Elgin Area Chamber connects our members with the information, opportunities, and people from across the political spectrum that makes a difference to your business with "Legislative Brew." Sometimes we'll meet for coffee, other times we just might meet for a "brew." In any case, EAC will bring together a mix of individuals engaged in government and the policy discussions facing our community, region, and state in for a cup and conversation.
