Meet Rep. Weaver’s New Chief of Staff, Nick Wheeler!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to take a minute and introduce myself. My name is Nick Wheeler, and I’m Rep. Weaver’s new Chief of Staff.

I’m recently married to my amazing wife, Ariela, and we love going on hikes, traveling, and trying new coffee shops and restaurants! We’re also huge hockey fans and love the Chicago Blackhawks.

Before this, I handled all of Rep. Weaver’s communications while working for the Illinois House Republicans, and am now moving over to work for him directly. You’ll see me out and about in coffee shops, at events, community meetings, and the Pekin and (soon to be) Kewanee district offices, so always feel free to come up and say hey!

If we can be of any assistance with anything, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at our new District office number, (309) 204-6514, or send me an email at You can also message us on Facebook or Instagram as well!

I look forward to meeting you!
