Swearing-in ceremony held for Sen. Sally Turner in Senate Chamber

On Saturday, January 30, 2021, State Senator Sally Turner (R-Beason) held a formal swearing-in ceremony in the Illinois Senate Chamber, affirming her position as the newest member of the Illinois Senate Republican Caucus. After being sworn in by her husband, Appellate Judge John Turner, Sen. Turner vowed to be a strong advocate for the residents of the 44th Senate District.


“I’m excited to get to work and look forward to being an active voice for the people of Central Illinois. The state of Illinois continues to face significant challenges, which have only been exacerbated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.


“I am fully focused and prepared to face these challenges. Our state must get its financial house in order and legislators must ensure that we provide the necessary tools to our citizens and job creator so they can recover from the devastating effects this virus has had on our economy.


“I hope to be a resource for the residents of the 44th district during my time in office. I encourage all of my constituents to reach out so I can best represent your interests as we steer Illinois back on track.”
