Since I was sworn into office as State Representative in fall of 2009, I have worked to be accessible to 59th District residents and responsive to your ideas. It has also been my goal to do what is right for the future of the State of Illinois and the district, even if it isn't always what is most popular.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office or find me on FaceBook or LinkedIn. Thanks for visiting!


Take Carol's Legislative Survey

During session, I encourage constituents to participate in my legislative issue surveys to help identify where the district stands on matters facing our state. These surveys are but one of the tools (in addition to speaking with constituents at their doors, on the phone and at events, conducting my own research, and listening to testimony from experts) that I use when making decisions on proposals that come before the General Assembly.

Happy Holidays

December 19, 2014

One of my favorite aspects of the holiday season is being able to share our community's many different cultures and traditions with each other. Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, or another holiday, I hope you and your family will have an opportunity to spend some quality time together and reflect upon the many blessings of the past year.

The 98th General Assembly Adjourns

December 5, 2014

The House adjourned for what is likely the final time during the 98th General Assembly at the close of Fall Veto Session on Wednesday afternoon. The House passed a joint resolution to adjourn our chamber "sine die" indicating that there would be no interest for a "lame duck" session and hence our business for the 98th General Assembly has concluded.
