With the legislative session done for the year, the list of lawmakers announcing plans to retire continues to grow.

Assistant Minority Leader Sandy Pasch (D-Shorewood) becomes the 16th member of the Assembly to say they will not seek re-election to their current post this fall. Pasch cited “personal matters and family health circumstances” for her decision.

The Democrat is a psychiatric nurse who she served on a task force that recommended a series of bills to improve mental health care throughout the state. Those bills were approved, and she believes she can have a greater impact outside of the Legislature than within it.

Pasch says she will continue serving in her Assembly leadership post until her term ends early next January.
