Nybo statement on Bellock retirement from House of Representatives
State Senator Chris Nybo (R-Elmhurst) released the following statement today on the retirement announcement of Deputy Leader Patti Bellock (R-Hinsdale).
“It has been an honor to serve with my good friend Patti Bellock for the last six years. As a new House member, I sat right in front of Patti, and she was generous with her time and advice as I grew into my new position. There could not have been a better role model for what makes a good legislator than Patti Bellock. She was our very first female House Deputy Leader. She has been a strong advocate on crucial healthcare and disability issues for Illinois families, takes the lead on complex budgetary legislation, and always makes herself available for anyone who needs her time. I would like to thank Leader Bellock for her service. We will all miss her dearly.”
