District 23 needs a new voice. We want to know that our elected officials truly represent us.
Hello, my name is Chris Kious, and I want to be your representative in Kane County government.
With my experience in business management and small business ownership, and with over ten years as an activist in both partisan and non-partisan issues, I have the skills it takes to represent all of the people of District 23, while keeping an eye on the bottom line.
Kane county is a large, diverse area. It is a county that is blessed with beautiful natural resources, a sound economic base and a quality of life which must be nurtured and protected. As county board commissioner, I plan to be a strong advocate for constituents and to fulfill the promise of the Kane County government mission statement, which is:
“…to be accountable to its citizens in providing innovative and high quality government services in an economical, fair, professional, courteous and ethical manner to enhance and protect the health, welfare, and safety of those who live and work in Kane County.”
With your support, I will ensure that no one in District 23 will ever feel like their voice isn't heard again.

I’m an avid geocacher (can you say nerd?), scuba diver, bicycle rider, fisherman, square dancer and hobby naturalist.
I am a father and grandfather but unfortunately most of our family is downstate or out of state.
People often recognize me as the man in the hat.
