Senator Dave Syverson announces re-election bid
Syverson has been representing the Stateline in Springfield since 1992
ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - The longest-tenured state lawmaker from the area isn’t ready to give up his state Senate seat just yet.
Dave Syverson announces his intention to run for re-election in the 35th District. The Republican Senate deputy leader from Cherry Valley has been representing the Stateline in Springfield since 1992, but this election cycle he will face a primary challenge from current Winnebago County Republican Chairperson Eli Nicolosi.
I see my job down there as both voting for legislation, voting against bad bills but also just being a strong voice for our region. To make sure that Chicago controlled Legislature knows that Northern Illinois exists and these are the needs we have,” Sen. Syverson says.
