Welcome to my legislative website. I am proud to serve as the State Senator from Illinois’ 48th District. I hope you’ll find this site a useful resource in keeping up-to-date with what’s happening in our district and in Springfield. Please contact any of my offices with questions or ways I can better serve you.

It is my honor to represent you in Springfield.

Sincerely,
ManarSig
State Senator Andy Manar
48th Legislative District

For state lawmakers, the summer months represent a break from the hustle and bustle of the state Capitol. The time away from Springfield gives lawmakers more time to meet with area residents, updating them on recent action in Springfield, as well as listening to their concerns and suggestions. 

For State Senator Andy Manar (D – Bunker Hill), this summer represented a time to connect with area residents and local leaders and discuss the issues facing Central Illinois and the state.

In the Community

The events allow for an open dialogue between area residents and Senator Manar, as well as an opportunity to update residents on developments in Springfield.


Since taking office, Senator Manar has held 38 “Capitol on Your Corner” events throughout the 48th District.

Manar also hosted three senior fairs over the summer months in Decatur, Gillespie and Taylorville, bringing together state and local agencies in one convenient location for area seniors. Most events offered health screenings, fraud prevention information and other important resources.
