InfoJulie Hamos has been guided by principles of justice and democracy since she fled Hungary with her family in the midst of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. Settling in Cleveland, Ohio, Julie’s family instilled in her the belief that she needed to give back to the country that had granted them freedom.

Since 1998, Julie has been the State Representative for the 18th District. As Chair of the House Mass Transit Committee, she led the 2008 rescue of the regional transit system with comprehensive funding and reform. Her legislative priorities reflect her commitment to all of Illinois, including new laws to make housing more affordable and available statewide; health care legislation to expand access to reproductive, mental health and long-term care services; and measures to improve the farm economy and provide access to healthy, local food.

Prior to holding elected office, Julie pursued a career dedicated to public service. Upon receipt of a law degree from George Washington University, Julie became the first staff attorney for a new subcommittee of the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee in Washington D.C., confirming her belief that government can and should be a catalyst for change.

Julie moved to Springfield Illinois in 1976 to open an office to advocate for low-income and working families in matters before the state legislature. In 1981 she joined the staff of then-State’s Attorney Richard M. Daley, serving as legislative counsel and policy advisor on issues of domestic violence and sexual assault, and later as director of the child support division. In 1988, Julie founded Julie E. Hamos & Associates, which represented not-for-profit and public interest organizations; she was also selected as a federally-appointed elections officer to monitor union elections after settlement of a corruption lawsuit.

Julie has received more than 20 “top legislator” awards from organizations and agencies. She was selected as a fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government for Senior Executives in State and Local Government in 2004 and was honored to be named one of Crain's Chicago Business “25 Women to Watch” in 2007.

Julie is married to Alan Greiman, a retired appellate court justice. They live in Evanston.
