State Sen. Andy Manar to Become Pritzker Senior Adviser

CHICAGO (AP) – Governor JB Pritzker announced Monday that Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) will join his administration to serve as senior advisor, bringing a “wealth of experience and accomplishments on vital issues” in Illinois.

Pritzker said that in his career, Manar has led the effort to reform the state’s antiquated education funding formula, made insulin cheaper for the millions who depend upon it, led efforts to reform election laws, and oversaw the appropriations committee during truly challenging times.

Manar will begin the role on Jan. 19, days after he steps down from the Illinois Senate.

Because of the breadth of Manar’s policy background, he will advise the governor on a range of issues, including downstate economic revitalization, appropriations, and COVID-19 recovery efforts.
