Welcome and thank you for visiting!
My name is Tom Bennett and I am your Republican candidate for Illinois State Representative for the 106th district.
However, the 106th district is changing. In fact, all districts in the state are changing due to the recent Census. Every 10 years, districts are redrawn to account for the movement of people. Some areas have increased in population. Other areas have lost population. In 2021, the 106th includes all or parts of Iroquois, Livingston, Woodford, Ford and Vermilion Counties. With the redrawing of the maps, the new 106th will include all or parts of Iroquois, Livingston, LaSalle, Grundy, McLean, Will and Ford Counties.
The new 106th district has over 70 towns, villages, and communities, including all or portions of Morris, Minooka, Coal City, Channahon, Chenoa, Diamond, Streator, Seneca, Marseilles, Watseka, Dwight, Gibson City, Paxton, Odell, Roberts, Saunemin, Piper City, Kempton, Cullom, Milford, Onarga, Cissna Park, Buckley, Loda, Melvin, Sibley, Strawn, Chatsworth, Elliott, Gilman, Thawville, Mazon, Ransom, Kinsman, Gardner, Reddick, Godley, Woodsworth, Forrest, Fairbury. Goodwine, Stockland, Sheldon, Iroquois, Crescent City, Danforth, Charlotte, Weston, Meadows, McDowell, Scovel, Stelle, Clifton, Ashkum, L’Erable, Martinton, Papineau, Beaverville, Donovan, Cayuga, Rowe, Cardiff, Blair, Sunbury, Nevada, Blackstone, Verona, Kernan, Altmar, Leonore, Carbon Hill, Claypool, Aux Sable, Wing, Rugby, Emington, Swygert, Bryce, Pittwood, and Kangley.
This website is about change and making things better. We need to focus on what’s important to our communities: jobs, the economy, agriculture, quality education, public safety and the most vulnerable. I want to be your voice and ask for your thoughts and concerns. What are your issues? I look forward to hearing from you as we work together to improve Illinois. You may contact me through the email address shown here in this website.
Government should be an interactive process and I encourage your input. After all, this is your government. I hope you will find this website a useful tool in helping me to serve you better. Please note that tax dollars were not used to bring you this website.
for State Representative,
House District 106
