Chris Nybo (born April 30, 1977) is a Republican member of the Illinois Senate, representing the 24th District since 2014 after his predecessor, Kirk Dillard, resigned to take up a position as head of the RTA. Previously, he was a member of the Illinois House of Representatives, representing the 41st District from 2011 to 2013.[1]


Nybo received a B.A. from Dartmouth College and a J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School. Nybo was a recipient of a Harry S. Truman Scholarship. He previously served as an Elmhurst, Illinois alderman.[2] Nybo was selected as an Illinois Rising Star in 2010, 2011, and 2012.[3] Nybo served on the following committees: Mass Transit; Consumer Protection; Environment & Energy; Transportation, Regulation, Roads; and Tollway Oversight.[1]

In 2012, Nybo ran for election to the 24th District seat in the Illinois State Senate. He faced incumbent and fellow Republican Kirk Dillard in the primary on March 20, 2012, but lost.[4]

In 2013, Nybo began a second run for the Illinois Senate being vacated by Kirk Dillard and defeated fellow Republican Dennis Reboletti in the primary. In August, he was appointed to this same seat when Dillard resigned to become Chairman of the RTA.[5]
