Sen. Patrick Joyce

SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Patrick Joyce was sworn in to another term in the Senate Wednesday, as the 103rd General Assembly officially began.

“It’s an incredible honor to continue representing the 40th District and serving the people of Illinois,” said Joyce (D-Essex). “I want to thank the people of the 40th District for putting their trust in me to represent them in Springfield for another term. I’m looking forward to getting back to work with all of my colleagues to make Illinois an even better state.”

Joyce, a Democrat from Essex, was appointed to the Senate in 2019 and was elected to a full term in November. He represents the 40th District, which includes portions of southland, as well as a majority of Kankakee County, an eastern portion of Will County, and southeastern Grundy County.

His top goals include making the health care system easier to navigate and more supportive for those suffering from serious illness, ensuring that everyone has access to clean and affordable drinking water, and reducing class sizes throughout the state.

Joyce strives to keep everyone updated with the most helpful and accurate information, and encourages people to reach out to his office at 708-756-0882 or via his website with questions and concerns.
