About the District

Rock River, Rockford
The 16th district is made of up of 14 counties and stretches from Illinois’ northern to eastern borders.

It includes everything from large towns like Rockford and DeKalb to smaller communities like Gibson City, Bradford, and Ashton.

With strong ties to agriculture, manufacturing, and energy production, the 16th district is in many ways a microcosm of the American Midwest.

From the site of a Lincoln-Douglas debate in 1858 and a major hub on the Underground Railroad to the childhood home of our 40th President, Ronald Reagan, the 16th district has definitely left its mark on American history.

Today, the 16th district is home to Starved Rock State Park and Northern Illinois University, and has attracted diverse citizens and businesses to these ever-changing and growing communities...

...all while staying true to the “salt of the earth” roots that are at the core of this great district.
