Lt. Governor Sheila Simon says she will not run again

Democratic Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon announced Wednesday she will not run again for next year.

Her decision would leave Governor Pat Quinn without a running mate.

Simon issued a statement saying:

“Serving as Lieutenant Governor has given me an opportunity to advocate on important issues that affect our state but it is time for me to do even more. I want to serve the people of Illinois in a role where I can have an even greater impact.”

Governor Quinn chose Simon in 2010 after Scott Lee Cohen won the Democratic primary and then withdrew following revelations about his past.

Simon is the daughter of the late U.S. Senator, Paul Simon.

    Glad she is going. She was to address how in suburban cook co. we have to have superintends for every school even if we have 600 children in each one. That money could go into classrooms. And save the taxpayers money.She just blew that off on July 1, 2012. She's a waste of taxpayers money just like ALL the superintends. lea Tomassone
