Our District

The 22nd District of the Illinois House of Representatives is located around Midway Airport on Chicago's southwest side. The district is composed of Chicago's 13th and 23 wards, as well as parts of wards 18 and 14, and two precincts in Burbank. The three main languages in the district are English, Spanish and Polish, reflecting the ethnic composition of our community as a neighborhood of working class Latino and Polish immigrants. For the last 48 years, the district has been represented by 78-year-old Michael Madigan.
