Sheila Simon said she doesn’t want to serve as Illinois Governor Pat Quinn’s lieutenant governor any more.
The Democrat said she will be seeking election to another public office, but during a news conference in Chicago she wouldn’t say which one.
“What I’m doing is really focused on how I can serve the people of the State of Illinois,” Simon said. “I’ve, I think, been an effective servant as lieutenant governor. I think I can be an even more effective public servant in other elective office.”
