Congrats to Rep. Chris Welch and Wife ShawnTe:  Welch's Welcome Home Baby Daughter Marley!



Hillside, Illinois- As temperatures dropped across the 7th District and the Chicago land area on Monday, State Representative Emanuel "Chris" Welch, D-7th, and his wife ShawnTe welcomed home their new bundle of joy, Marley Joyce Welch.

"These past few weeks have been filled with anticipation," said Welch. "Waiting on the arrival of our daughter has been exciting for all of us, especially big brother Tyler."
Marley Joyce Welch made her entrance into this world on Saturday, January 25, 2014 at 10:43am.  She weighed in at 6 pounds. Marley and her mom arrived home on Monday, January 27, 2014, just in time to celebrate mom ShawnTe's birthday.
"It truly was a beautiful day for our family," said Welch. "We are looking forward to watching Tyler and Marley grow up in the 7th District like ShawnTe and I did as kids."
Rep. Welch just started his second year as Representative of the 7th District which includes all or parts of Bellwood, Berkeley, Broadview, Forest Park, Hillside, LaGrange Park, Maywood, Melrose Park, Northlake, River Forest, Westchester and Western Springs. The 2014 Session is scheduled to start tomorrow, January 29, 2014 with Governor Pat Quinn delivering his annual State of the State address, but Rep. Welch will not be in attendance for the start of session.


"I'm actually looking forward to taking a couple of weeks off to help around the house with the kids," Welch said.  "I'll be back in Springfield by March 1 and ready to push several pieces of legislation including HB2405, Mandatory All Day Kindergarten, HB4191, the Student Bill of Rights, HB4292, a bill to allow the Withdrawal for Township School Trustees, a bill to allow for the consolidation of River Forest Township with the Village of River Forest which could save River Forest taxpayers thousands of dollars, and many others.
