Congressman Rodney Davis’ personal and professional life has been dedicated to serving his family, community, and state.
On January 3, 2013, Rodney was sworn-in as the congressman for the 13th District of Illinois, a 14-county district covering both urban and rural areas of Central and Southwestern Illinois. As a Member of the 113th Congress, Rodney serves on the House Committees on Agriculture and Transportation & Infrastructure.
Since the age of seven, Rodney has lived in Taylorville, where he attended public school. He continued his education in central Illinois and graduated with honors from Millikin University in Decatur.
For 16 years, Rodney served as Projects Director for Congressman John Shimkus. In that position, Rodney became intimately familiar with the role that the federal government plays in our communities, where it can help, and where it can hurt. He was instrumental in helping Illinois citizens and communities cut through government red tape and worked daily to provide support and relief to a wide array of important local projects.
Rodney resides in Taylorville with his wife, Shannon, and their three children, Toryn, Clark and Griffin.
The Davis family attends St. Mary’s Church, where Rodney served on the Finance Committee and as Volunteer Athletic Director. His other civic activities have included serving as fundraising drive chairman for the Christian County United Way, co-chairing a multimillion dollar YMCA capital fund drive, and serving on Christian County Senior Center Board of Directors. In his free time, Rodney coaches Taylorville Junior Football and his sons’ Little League team.
