TOPIC: “Fireside Chat with Chuck” is an opportunity for you to learn about what is happening in state government and our communities, ask questions and offer suggestions. Please come by and bring a friend, coworker, staff, and/or spouse.

BIO: State Senator Chuck Weaver represents the 37th District of Illinois, which includes 10 Central Illinois counties that are north and then east and west of Peoria. He has been serving in the Senate since 2015.

He is a fiscal conservative.

Chuck understands job growth must be his primary focus and works to make fundamental changes that reverse the decline of our state. In that regard, his focus is workforce development and his passion is for quality education of our children. That passion led to his appointment as the Republican Spokesperson of the Senate Education Committee.

For the 101st General Assembly, Chuck continues to serve as the Spokesperson for the Education Committee. He also serves as a member on the Higher Education, Insurance, Labor, Licensed Activities and Transportation committees.

The Senator also currently serves on the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules, a bipartisan legislative oversight committee authorized to conduct systematic reviews of administrative rules promulgated by State agencies.

Chuck received his law degree from DePaul University and then joined his family’s Kentucky Fried Chicken business. His reputation for operations and employee development led to the position of President of the American Kentucky Fried Chicken Franchisee Association.

Chuck has been active in real estate construction as well as an investor in start-up businesses. He has been involved in more than 50 Limited Liability Companies.

Chuck donates his legislative salary to local charities including his work with “Leaders Change Illinois” which launches new projects aimed at improving our community. To date, “Leaders Change Illinois” has granted more than 90 grants of $1K each to young leaders and not-for-profits throughout central Illinois.

Chuck is most proud of his family – Laurie, his wife of 33 years; three children; and two grandchildren. He resides on the family farm in North Peoria.

MEAL: Miller Farm Brick Chicken-crispy skinned Miller Farms chicken breast, seasonal mushrooms, vegetable carbonara, lemon jus. Cash bar.
