Pritchard to Leave Legislature
August 1, 2017
Representative Robert Pritchard (R - IL 70) has announced that he will not be seeking re-election to the Illinois House of Representatives next fall. Citing 14 years in Springfield as being long enough, Bob plans to devote more time to family and serving the community in new ways.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Representative Pritchard for his service to the district. Even though we often disagree on policy and specific votes, I've always found Bob to be very approachable. He seems to be at every event in the district, and always has time to talk to constituents. I've found him responsive - always hearing what I have to say, and personally answering my emails. In short, Bob has been an excellent representative. I hope, given the chance, to be as accessible and responsive as Bob has been.
Thank you Bob, and best wishes for the future!
