|URBANA, Ill. (AP)--A long-time state representative from Urbana says she won't run for a 7th term in office.
The Champaign News-Gazette reports Rep. Naomi Jakobsson made her announcement Tuesday evening in an email to supporters.
The Democrat says the decision to not seek re-election wasn't easy, but says it's been an "honor" to serve the community.
The 71 year old was first elected in 2002.
Her campaign manager, Michael Richards, sent an email to supporters after Jakobsson's announcement. He says he'll run for her seat.
