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.

She writes,

“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.”

  1. Well, let’s get the rampant speculation machine going.

    Who’s she going to tap as her successor?

    My money is on Gottemoller, but if you gave me the right odds I’d bet she’s shameless enough to prop up Cameron Hubbard.

  2. If we’re talking failed Gottemoller, how about adding Schofield into the mix.

  3. Contestant: Alex, I’ll take “Things That Are Bass-Ackwards” for $1,000, please.

    Alex: “And the answer is “With that in mind, I intend to dedicate myself to setting things right in Springfield.”

    Contestant: “What is something you should say when you first get elected to the legislature, not when you are about to retire from the legislature.”

    Alex: “Correct.”

  4. “how about adding Schofield into the mix.”

    I’d think not. If there’s anyone who can see straight through a vacuous bimbo, it’s another woman.

  5. Miki the Monkey, a very talented Capuchin chimp, will be performing for the kids at my club on the 25th.

    I’ll ask him if he’d be available to run for the seat, right after he gets done, with his bongo playing portion of his act.

  6. The way these ELITE anointed ones shuffle about trying to appoint their successors puts me in mind of the story of the squashed frog ……..

    There was this little boy about 12 years old walking down the sidewalk dragging a flattened frog on a string behind him.

    He walked up to a house of ill repute and knocked on the door.

    When the Madam answered it, she saw the little boy and asked what he wanted.

    He said, “I want to have sex with one of the women inside. I have the money and I’m not leaving until I do.”

    The Madam figured, why not, so she told him to come in.

    Once in, she told him to pick any of the girls he liked.

    He asked, “Do any of the girls have the clap?”

    Of course, the Madam said no.

    He said, “I heard all the men talking about having to get shots after making it with Amber. THAT’S the girl I want!”

    Since the little boy was so adamant and had the money to pay for it, the Madam told him to go to the first room on the right.

    He headed down the hall dragging the squashed frog behind him.

    Ten minutes later he came back, still dragging the frog, paid the Madam, and headed out the door.

    The Madam stopped him and asked, “Why did you pick the only girl in the place with the clap, instead of one of the others?”

    He said, “Well, if you must know, tonight when I get home, my parents are going out to a restaurant to eat, leaving me at home with my baby-sitter.

    After they leave, my baby-sitter will have sex with me because she just happens to be very fond of little boys.

    She will get the clap that I just caught.

    When Mom and Dad get back, Dad will take the baby-sitter home.

    On the way, he’ll jump the baby-sitter and he’ll catch the clap.

    Then, when Dad gets home from the baby-sitters, he and Mom will go to bed and have sex, and Mom will catch it.

    In the morning when Dad goes to work, the milkman will deliver the milk, have a quickie with Mom and catch the clap, and HE’S the son-of-a-bitch who ran over my FROG.”

  7. The moral of the story is that the more these ELITES pass around their bullshit, the more the people get screwed.

  8. Over a ten-year period each senate district has two four-year terms and one two-year term.

  9. Cameron Hubbard lives in State Senator Karen McConnaughay’s district.

  10. Well Fierabras you outdid yourself
    On your story & moral.

    LOL giggle !

    Quite an array of humorous people
    On this blog (bathroom potty talkers

  11. “Cameron Hubbard lives in State Senator Karen McConnaughay’s district.”

    Wouldn’t be the first time someone carpetbags for an open seat. /cough/ /cough/ Joe Walsh.

  12. The three issues she picked are all tangent side deals that mean little.

    Pam what about working on getting the state on balanced budgets with no borrowing and reform the pension system?

    Quit wasting time on nonsense, go to the heart of IL’s fiscal problems.

  13. There is no residency requirement for Congress. Basically, one can run from wherever one wishes.

    For the state legislature, one must live in the district for a year (before taking office or before the election, I can’t remember which).

  14. Streamlining Mental Healthcare should have been done at Pioneer Center before Behavioral Health tanked .

    True… “Elitest BS”
