State Senator Mattie Hunter (D-Chicago) returns as chairperson of the Illinois Senate’s Human Services Committee. As a majority caucus whip, Hunter is known for taking on great challenges as a Senate leader, something she has consistently done since first being appointed to the Illinois General Assembly in 2003.

“I look forward to once more chairing the Human Services Committee,” Hunter said. “I assure I will continue striving for excellence and doing my utmost in fighting for my constituents.”

Hunter is deeply committed to continuing to push toward progress in the Human Services Committee for 3rd  District residents. She is eager to press forward in her efforts as chairperson and diligently work with her fellow committee members to finish the work she started.

“Although dollars may be limited, rest assured I plan to hold the administration accountable for its promise that all communities in the state of Illinois are served – not a chosen few,” Hunter declared.

Furthermore, Hunter is looking forward to serving on the Appropriations I, Executive and Public Health (where she is vice-chairperson) committees during the 98th General Assembly.
