Meet Dr. Schmidt
State Representative Kevin Schmidt is a local small business owner, doctor, committed to bringing future-facing ideas to protect our families and grow local jobs.
Representative Schmidt was elected to represent the 114th District in 2022. As State Representative, Kevin has opposed Governor JB Pritzker’s wasteful spending plan that included more than $500 million for programs for people who are in Illinois illegally and pay raises for legislators. He believes Illinois taxpayer dollars should go to programs to benefit Illinois citizens. He also is donating his pay increase to local charities. Kevin is committed to lowering taxes, improving the local economy, and fighting for Illinois veterans.
Dr. Schmidt has served the Millstadt community as a chiropractor for the last 17 years. He is the owner and operator of Schmidt Chiropractic. Over the past several years, he implemented a cost saving, fiscally conservative, streamlined, and consolidated business plan to allow him to offer the most affordable services he could. As a one-man owner and operator, he was able to make significant cuts to business expenses so he could pass on saving to his patients. Dr. Schmidt finds every possible way to lower and maintain affordable costs that can be shared with his patients, and he is committed to doing the same in Springfield.
Dr. Schmidt was born and raised in Belleville, where he attended Union K-6, then West Junior High, before graduating from Belleville West High School. He knows the struggles this area has experienced over the last few decades because he’s spent his entire life here. His dad worked for the local Illinois Department of Transportation and his mother ran an in-home day care service.
He attended Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and received his Doctor of Chiropractic and Bachelor of Science in Human Biology at Logan University in Chesterfield, MO.
Dr. Schmidt likes to be very involved in the community either by volunteering his time in local organizations or by donating money to local causes. He is the past president of the Millstadt Jaycees and Optimist Club. He is a past board member of the Millstadt Chamber of Commerce and a current member of the NRA. He is a mason and Shriner. Dr. Schmidt also goes into surrounding communities to businesses to give free lunches with educational lectures and performs free spinal screenings at local events.
