State Sen. Dan McConchie officially was set to open his office for the 26th Illinois Senate District on Wednesday afternoon in Lake Zurich.
McConchie, R-Hawthorn Woods, will cut the ribbon along with other Republicans at the office at 325 N. Rand Road, Suite B. The event, set to last from 3 to 4 p.m., is open to the public.
McConchie won the March primary to succeed Republican Dan Duffy, of Lake Barrington, who chose to limit himself to two terms. The Republican Party appointed him to fill out the remainder of Duffy’s term after Duffy stepped down to take a job as president of a Chicago-based nonprofit.
McConchie served eight years in the Army National Guard as both an infantryman and a military police officer before a 2007 crash with a hit-and-run driver. He now uses a wheelchair.
Illinois’ 26th Senate District covers southeastern McHenry and southwestern Lake County, as well as portions of Kane and Cook counties, including Algonquin, Crystal Lake, Lake in the Hills, Cary, Fox River Grove, Carpentersville and Barrington.
McConchie will face Democratic opponent Kelly Mazeski, of Barrington, in the Nov. 8 election.
