Senator Rickey Hendon has decided to retire from politics. I regret his decision but certainly understand. His reasons for retirement are simple. He is disappointed. The back and forth in politics. is a bit much. The last election got to him. As he watched the returns and saw the low voting turn out and the dismal numbers,he said enough already. He said politics was beginning to make him sick. Sleepless nights, hypertension among the illness. He said, he enjoys the political folly, but enough already. It is one thing to go to Springfield and fight. The budget has been cut, the taxes go up. He was particularly sadden about the CTA fairs be reinstated for seniors.
