Carol Sente is a Democratic member of the Illinois House of Representatives, representing the 59th Representative District since September 2009.[1] The district includes all or part of Vernon Hills, Prairie View, Buffalo Grove, Green Oaks, Indian Creek, Lincolnshire, Mundelein, Riverwoods, Wheeling.[citation needed]

Sente was appointed to the 59th District seat on September 12, 2009, after her predecessor, Kathleen A. Ryg, resigned to rejoin the private sector.[1][dead link] In the 2010 legislative election she was elected in her own right, defeating Republican candidate Dan Sugrue.

The Illinois branch of the Republican-associated Opportunity Project (IOP), a self-described "research and public policy enterprise" advocating conservative state legislation and policies in support of "free markets and free minds" [a 501(c)(4) tax exempt organization], scored Rep. Sente in 2012 at 75 on a scale of 100; a grade of "B-", but a score tied for 12th highest of 120 members of the Illinois House evaluated.[2][3][4][better source needed]
