About Martin McLaughlin


State Rep. Martin McLaughlin is in his second term serving Illinois' 52nd District in the Illinois House of Representatives. He was the Village President of Barrington Hills, a small business professional, and a financial expert who brought his direct no-nonsense approach and private sector experience to Springfield during his first term.

“Someone has to stick up for taxpayers and small businesses whose backs are breaking, carrying the ever-increasing tax burdens placed upon them by Springfield and local taxing bodies. When I was Mayor in Barrington Hills, the trustees and I were able to work through our differences to cut spending and taxes for the benefit of our residents. It can be done, but you need strong, experienced leadership to make it happen,” said McLaughlin.

McLaughlin was elected Village President of Barrington Hills in 2013 and re-elected in 2017. In the years prior, the Village had spent recklessly, increasing expenditures 83.5%. A conservative from the private sector, McLaughlin brought business principles to a bloated local government. During his tenure as Village President, he successfully reduced spending, cut taxes, resolved inherited legal disputes, consolidated departments, and put the Village back on a path towards fiscal responsibility. He reduced the village’s levy by over 24% since 2013.

An owner and manager of a registered investment advisory firm for many years, McLaughlin has overseen the investment of pension assets, both public and private, through some of the most turbulent financial times in history. As a named fiduciary on pension plans, he has a unique background and experience working with leaders entrusted with public assets. He understands the State’s pension problem and property tax issues and is willing to address them head on.

Martin has been married to his wife, Kathleen, for 31 years. They met at Elgin Academy, which Martin attended on a scholarship. He then went on to work his way through college, earning his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Illinois Wesleyan University. He and his wife are blessed with 5 daughters, ages 28 through 16. In his spare time, Martin enjoys volunteering with the Lion’s Club, coaching youth sports and playing competitive Baggo.

The 52nd House District includes parts of communities such as Barrington, Barrington Hills, South Barrington, Algonquin, Fox River Grove, Wauconda, Volo, Hoffman Estates, Inverness, Mundelein, and Libertyville.
