Roger L. Eddy (b. May 8, 1958) was a Republican member of the Illinois House of Representatives, representing the 109th District from 2003 - 2012. He resigned his seat on March 20, 2012 in order to spend time with his family and begin his new job as CEO of the Illinois Association of School Boards early.[1]

His sudden resignation brought controversy over the number and amount of pensions he will receive from the state. When he announced his retirement he was earning $107,400 as superintendent of the Hutsonville school district and $75,569 as a state lawmaker. With his new position he stays in the Teachers' Retirement System and with his jump in pay his pension will be at least $141,000 a year. In 2014 he will be able to collect a pension from his work in the legislature of approximately $24,000 a year.[2]

Eddy has served as School Superintendent of Crawford County, Principle/Teacher at Hutsonville High School, and Principle of Watseka High School.

He is a member of the Legislative Committee of the Illinois Association of School Administrators, Elks, and United Way of Wabash Valley Executive Board.[3]
