State Sen. Tim Bivins Says He Won't Run For Re-election

The State Senator representing the Dixon area has announced that he will not run for re-election.

Republican Tim Bivins was appointed to the post in 2008 and is up for re-election next year. His only comments on the decision came in a news release, where Bivins said it "was time to come home."

Bivins served as Lee County’s sheriff for 20 years and says he plans to stay involved in his community. He currently represents portions of nine counties in the 45th District, including Lee, Ogle, Stephenson, Winnebago, and DeKalb.
