About Davis:

On January 3, 2017, Davis was sworn in to his third term 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 115th Congress, he serves on the House Committees on Administration, Agriculture, and Transportation & Infrastructure. He was also appointed to serve as chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Biotechnology, Horticulture & Research.

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.

In 1995, he married Shannon, his high school sweetheart. At age 26, soon after the birth of their daughter, Toryn, Shannon was diagnosed with cancer. Throughout her treatment, Davis never missed one of Shannon’s sessions. A year after Shannon’s initial diagnosis, they welcomed twin sons Griffin and Clark. Today, Shannon is a 16-year survivor. She has her master’s degree in Nursing and works in Nursing Administration at Memorial Medical Center in Taylorville.

His 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.
