Gov. Pritzker orders flags lowered to honor late State Sen. Bennett

(WAND) — After posting a statement regarding the passing of Illinois State Senator Scott Bennett, Governor JB Pritzker announced he has ordered flags across the state lowered to, “honor Senator Bennett and his service to the people of Illinois.”

Sen. Bennett was only 45 years old when he died suddenly from complications of a brain tumor on Friday. He left behind a legacy of legislation as well as his wife Stacy and two children. His family has asked that well-wishers hold off on sending flowers at this time as they are choosing an organization where individuals can make donations in the late senator’s honor.
