Chris Nybo '02 presents, "Running for Office: From UChicago Law to State Representative"
A former State Representative and Elmhurst Alderman, Chris Nybo is currently a candidate for the Illinois Senate. While in the Illinois House of Representatives from 2011-2013, Nybo successfully led efforts expanding the availability of live-saving allergy medicine for school children (known as the Epi-Pen Law), prohibiting politicians from putting their names and faces on taxpayer funded signs (known as the Blagojevich Billboard Ban) and reforming workers' compensation so that it's easier to do business in Illinois.
Born in Elmhurst, Chris is a lifelong resident of the western suburbs. He graduated from Fenwick High School, Dartmouth College (Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude) and University of Chicago Law School. He is an active supporter of the Ray Graham Association for People With Disabilities, the York Senior Center, Elmhurst Youth Baseball, and Immaculate Conception Parish. His honors include selection as a Harry S. Truman Scholar by the United States Government.
In his legal work, Chris assists small and large businesses on a variety of employment matters, and he has been honored on the 2011 and 2010 Illinois Rising Stars list featuring outstanding young lawyers in the State of Illinois. He currently lives in Elmhurst with his wife Faye and their three children.
