Illinois state senator announces resignation
State Sen. Dan Kotowski (D-IL) has announced that he will be resigning in three weeks, effective Oct. 5, to pursue another career path.
"I am grateful to the residents of our community for the chance to serve and make a meaningful difference," Kotowski said. "I have accepted an offer to be the president and CEO of ChildServ, a nonprofit organization with a 121-year history that helps 3,100 at-risk children and families lead better lives. I am honored to take the helm of this respected organization and look forward to ensuring that ChildServ be a catalyst for change as it makes even more of a difference in the lives of children. It has been an honor and a dream come true to be an elected official in our state."
Kotowski also said that, as senator, he worked to improve the quality of life of those living in Illinois.
"During my service, my goal was to do all I could to end that culture and improve the quality of life for people in our state," Kotowski said. "I’m very proud of my record in affecting that change. Working with my colleagues from both sides of the aisle, I passed bills that were signed into law that heightened transparency, accountability and reform of government spending. In particular, I am proud of my laws that eliminated outdated and costly mandates, that compelled much needed scrutiny of billions in grant dollars and that required funding of state programs to be based, for the first time ever, on their performance."
