SPRINGFIELD -- On Wednesday, Jan. 13, Chris Bos (R-Lake Zurich) took the oath of office to become State Representative for the 51st District in the Illinois House of Representatives for the 102nd General Assembly. Bos was elected to the House in the 2020 general election.

"First and foremost, I want to thank the residents of the 51st District for placing your trust in me to represent our communities in the General Assembly," said Bos. "Our state is facing many challenges but as I have said from the beginning, I firmly believe we can rise to the occasion by working together and ensuring the voices of local communities are heard. There is more that unites us than divides us, and this mentality is what will help us change the status quo, tackle corruption and halt the crushing tax burden that has already driven too many families out of our state.


"I am honored to be entrusted with this responsibility and will work every day to ensure our communities continue to be amazing places to live, work and raise our families."

Before joining the General Assembly, Bos served as an Ela Township Trustee; and he remains actively involved with various non-profit and volunteer initiatives in the community. He is also the Director of Development for Reclaim13, a non-profit that works to free children from sexual exploitation by focusing on prevention programs for adolescents and adults, and healing programs for children and young adult victims of human trafficking.

Bos and his wife live in Lake Zurich and have been married for twenty years. They have three children - teenage boy/girl twins, and a daughter who recently began elementary school.

The 51st House District covers all or portions of the communities of Barrington, Buffalo Grove, Deer Park, Forest Lake, Grayslake, Green Oaks, Hawthorn Woods, Kildeer, Lake Barrington, Lake Zurich, Libertyville, Long Grove, Mettawa, Mundelein, North Barrington, Tower Lakes, Vernon Hills and Waukegan.
