Rita Bomher is proud to be a part of the Local 777 family as a Business Agent. Before joining the Teamsters full time, Rita, a working mom of six children, served for five years as a shop Steward for First Student School Bus drivers in Belvidere, IL. She received her commercial driver's license in 1984 and as a third generation Teamster is proud to continue to carry it to this day. After studying criminal justice in college, Rita first worked in criminal justice and then later in the insurance industry as a commercial line underwriter.
She is an avid genealogist and a 20 year Boy Scout leader.
However, she is most passionate and proud of her work serving her Teamster brothers and sisters. Rita loves participating with Local 777's Volunteer Organizing Committee: helping fellow workers learn how to stand together and build a better life for themselves and their families.
