Born and raised in Illinois, where he is now raising four children with his wife Christy, Congressman Randy Hultgren was elected in 2010 to represent the state’s 14th Congressional District.
As a member of the 2010 freshman class, Randy was part of the largest group of new Republicans in nearly 100 years. This class has shaken Washington to its foundation and has stopped the massive expansion of government dead in its tracks.
In Washington, Congressman Hultgren has committed himself to working for fiscal sanity, real healthcare reform, and pro-growth policies that will put Americans back to work. In the current 112th Congress, Randy serves on the Agriculture, Space, Science & Technology and Transportation & Infrastructure Committees.
In typical, Chicago-style politics, Democrats in Springfield redrew the Congressional District Randy represents in an attempt to eliminate a number of Republican-held seats in other parts of the state. The new district includes parts of McHenry, Lake, Kendall, Kane, DuPage, DeKalb and Will counties.
Randy was elected to the DuPage County Board and County Forest Preserve Board in 1994; to the Illinois House of Representatives in 1999; and to the Illinois Senate in 2007. At every level, he has fought for prosperity and free enterprise and for smaller, smarter government.
Randy graduated from Bethel College in 1988 and later attended Chicago-Kent College of Law, graduating in 1993. Randy was born in 1966 in Park Ridge, Illinois and he currently resides in Winfield with his wife, Christy, and four children.
