State Senator Pam Althoff first entered the General Assembly when Dick Klemm retired in 2003.
She has served since then, being elected each time.
Now, on her 2016 campaign web site, she announces she will not run again when the two-year term is up in 2018.
“As an advocate of term limits, I plan to retire following the upcoming 2 year term.
“With that in mind, I intend to dedicate myself to setting things right in Springfield.
“My goal is to complete several of the projects I have started including
- streamlining mental healthcare
- implementing the Grant Accountability legislation
- developing our State’s long term e-waste recycling program
“I am committed to having Illinois become a state that each and every citizen can point to with pride.
“Being a part of the restoration of our state government will be the culmination and pride of my career.”
