Thank you Sen. Donne Trotter

Illinois State Capitol - Springfield
First I'm going to post this tweet from ABC 7. It was announced on Friday that state Sen. Donne Trotter - in the Illinois state Senate he's the assistant majority leader - is retiring from his seat. His resignation is effective immediately.
As the process normally goes Democratic committeemen in the 17th state senate district will have 30 days to select someone to fill the remainder of his term. Sen. Trotter's term would end in January 2019.

To which Worlee Glover caught on to this early and it's expected that state Rep. Elgie Sims may fill Sen. Trotter's shoes in our state Senate. Now the question is who will fill Sims' shoes for the 34th state representative district?

Trotter has served as state Senator since 1993. Sims have been a state Representative since 2012.

Here's Worlee's posting over at Concerned Citizens of Chatham.

Here are some more tweets about  Trotter's retirement:
