GOV, Senator Don Harmon gets praised [39th SEN]

Sen. Don Harmon (Oak Park) represents northern Proviso Township (Melrose Park and Stone Park). He's more active in other parts of the district, but he's a highly talented legislator.

reminds us of Harmon's stature. A freshman senator from Lake County considers just sitting next to Harmon in the legislature an advantage.
For the swearing-in ceremony itself, Bond was joined on the Senate floor by his wife, Jennifer, and their three children. He noted that his decision to sit near state Sen. Don Harmon, an Oak Park Democrat starting his third term, proved to be more fortuitous than he could have predicted.

"I wanted to sit near Don Harmon because he's one of the leading thinkers in the Senate, and we're about the same age and both have young children," Bond said. "So I had my kids down there, and the ceremony was about an hour-and-a-half, so he pulled out crayons for them that he already had in his desk."
