March is Women’s History Month, focusing on the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society.
The Senate Republican Caucus will be highlighting the stories of many influential women in Illinois throughout the month. On every Friday, the Caucus will also feature one of its women members.
On March 5, the Caucus is featuring Senator Jil Tracy of Quincy.
Prior to her public service, Sen. Tracy worked in private law and then went on to serve as Assistant Illinois Attorney General where she was Director of the West Central Regional Office for 19 counties.
Sen. Tracy puts her experience to good use in her leadership roles as Senate Republican Whip and Republican Spokesperson of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
When asked what her proudest accomplishments were, she said that raising four productive children was her proudest accomplishment, but her proudest moment in life so far was being sworn in as a practicing attorney to the Illinois State Bar Association.
The Illinois Senate Republicans are so appreciative of the work and experience Sen. Tracy brings to our Caucus. #strongwomenstrongIllinois
