Durkin Names Rep. Adam Brown to House Republican Leadership Team

House Republican Leader Jim Durkin names State Rep. Adam Brown (R-Champaign) as the new House Republican Conference Chairman.  

“Adam is a hard-working legislator who serves his district well and is well-liked by his peers,” said Durkin. “He always goes that extra mile to help other members.  One of the youngest members of the Illinois House, Adam does a great job of identifying and raising awareness about issues important to younger constituents and how other lawmakers can reach out to them.  I have total confidence in Adam, and I know he will do a great job for the caucus.”

Rep. Brown has served in the Illinois General Assembly since January 2011. Previously, at age 23, Adam Brown was the youngest person ever elected to the Decatur City Council, serving as Councilman from 2009-2010.
