Durbin Statement on Costello Decision not to Seek Reelection in 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–October 4, 2011.  U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today released the following statement after learning the Congressman Jerry Costello (D-IL) will not be seeking reelection next year. 

“Jerry Costello is without question the most effective advocate for his district that I have worked with in Congress.  As one example, his energy and skill did more to save Scott Air Force Base from being closed by the BRAC process than any other factor.  I will personally miss his leadership and his counsel in our Illinois delegation.”
