Illinois State Representative Dan Beiser released a statement on Sunday announcing he would step down effective immediately.
“Serving our Metro East community has been one of the greatest honors of my life,” Beiser said in the statement released Sunday afternoon. “I have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people to help improve our communities and I am proud of the accomplishments we have achieved together.”
Beiser announced earlier this year that he would not be seeking re-election. Beiser says the decision is based around his family.
“In the interest of spending more time with my wife, Teri, my children and grandchildren, I have decided to step down effective today, December 17.”
