Frese will not seek re-election in 2024


State Rep. Randy Frese

PALOMA — Republican State Representative Randy Frese will not seek another term for the 99th Illinois House District seat.

“It has been both an honor and a privilege to represent the fine people of West Central Illinois for the past eight and a half years,” Frese said in a press release issued Wednesday. “The job I have been elected to is both quite challenging and very rewarding. My plans are to continue my work as State Representative for the 99th District until the end of my current term. There is work yet to be done.”

Frese said he would miss the people and policy more than the politics.

Frese said he and his wife, Ronda, plan to travel and spend time with their adult children and family.

“I have been blessed in so many ways,” Frese said. “It is time to slow down and count all of those blessings and give thanks.” 

House Republican Leader Tony McCombie released the following statement about Frese in a press release: “Representative Frese has been an effective legislator for West Central Illinois, and a strong, reliable conservative voice for our caucus. I enjoy his common-sense approach to legislating and his ability to lighten even the most serious topics with humor and wit. I will miss him in the General Assembly, and I wish him and his wife Ronda the very best in his retirement.”
