The primary lady to function majority chief within the Illinois Home of Representatives and a prime lieutenant to Home Speaker Mike Madigan says she will not search re-election.
The Chicago Solar-Occasions stories Barbara Flynn Currie stated Thursday she is in search of new challenges and new alternatives. Amongst them she says she may go with advocacy teams “to attempt to ensure the general public agenda that they’re about has a voice.”
The seventy seven-yr-previous Currie is the longest serving lady within the Illinois Common Meeting. The Chicago Democrat was elected in 1979 and served the South Aspect’s twenty fifth District.
Currie stated she referred to as a number of colleagues on Thursday to inform them of her determination. She added her age has nothing to do together with her choice.
