Jesiel Attends First Springfield Session

SPRINGFIELD – State Representative Sheri Jesiel (R-Winthrop Harbor) attended her first session in the Illinois House of Representatives this week. Jesiel was welcomed to the chamber by her new colleagues and immediately took up her duties of the veto session concerning legislation vetoed by Governor Quinn this summer.

“I would like to thank my colleagues for their warm welcome to the chamber,” said Jesiel. “JoAnn Osmond was a wonderful Representative for the 61st District with big shoes to fill. I hope to carry-on in her foot-steps, and that of her husband Tim before her, in bringing sensible, fiscally responsible leadership to Springfield for the sake of the residents of the 61st District.”

Jesiel was appointed to represent the 61st District following the retirement of former State Representative JoAnn Osmond in July. While Jesiel was appointed to the fill the temporary void left by Osmond’s retirement, she was elected to a full term this fall to represent the 61st District in the upcoming 99th General Assembly that will convene this January.
