Mike Quigley was elected to Congress to represent Illinois’ 5th District after serving his community for more than thirty years. He previously served as a Cook County Commissioner and began his career through community service in the Lakeview neighborhood. His election to Congress was an opportunity to take his unique style of reform-minded politics, which Chicagoans have known for years, from Cook County to Washington.
As a member of the House Committee on Appropriations, Mike is using his position to prioritize investments in innovation and Chicago-area infrastructure, which will grow the local economy and spur job creation. He currently serves as the Chair of the Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government where he is focused on continuing his efforts to protect consumers, promote small business, and protect our financial system from policies that prioritize Wall Street at the expense of working Americans.
