Congressman Mike Quigley

Representing the 5th District of Illinois


From the Lakeview neighborhood on Chicago’s north side to Bensenville in DuPage County, Illinois’s Fifth District is home to some of the region’s finest communities, businesses, and attractions – including the historic home of the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. I am honored to call it my home and proud to represent the people who make it so unique.

Since my election to Congress in 2009, I have worked hard to make myself available to my constituents so I can better address their needs. As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, one of my most important jobs in Congress is to drive federal funding back home to improve things like our region’s transportation infrastructure. I have worked hard to not only provide additional resources to support the region’s economic development, but also to make my office a critical resource for my constituents. I believe in making the office available and accessible to everybody by hosting Visiting Office Hours and Congress on Your Corner events in neighborhoods across the district. Additionally, through my “Undercover Congressman” series, I have had the opportunity to join constituents where they work in an effort to better understand the various industries and jobs that contribute to the district’s economy. Serving as an Undercover Congressman, I’ve been privileged to try my hand at a wide variety of vocations including zookeeper, firefighterpinball machine mechanicbakerfarmer and many more.

I am honored that the people of Illinois’ Fifth District have chosen me to represent them in Congress. I promise to work hard every day to make our district, city and state a better place for you and your family.
