Cunningham represents the 18th District in the new 98th General Assembly as a member of the majority Democratic Caucus, which has a record 40 of 59 seats.
“It is an honor to follow in Senator Ed Maloney’s footsteps representing the people of Worth, Palos and Orland Townships, and the Southwest side of Chicago,” Cunningham said. “I look forward to continuing to work on improving Illinois’ future opportunities in educating our children, employing our citizens and expanding our economy.”
Cunningham served in the Illinois House of Representatives from 2011 through 2012. He spent the previous 20 years with the Cook County Sheriff’s Office as Communications Director and Chief of Staff.
