On Saturday, February 4th, Livingston County Board Member and family farmer Jason Bunting took the oath of office and was officially sworn-in as the new State Representative of the 106th Illinois House District, replacing Tom Bennett, who was recently appointed to the Illinois State Senate.
“I am honored to serve as the State Representative for the 106th District,” said Bunting. “As farmers and small business owners, my family has seen firsthand how bad policies from Springfield have hurt the business climate in Illinois and have driven families and job creators away. I promise to work tirelessly to bring the conservative values of the residents of this district to Springfield.”
