State Senator Dahl says he’s stepping down

Posted by wlpo on December 2, 2010

State Senator Gary Dahl is leaving political office, but he’s not leaving politics.  Dahl, a Republican, announced Thursday that he’s resigning from the state senate next Friday.

Dahl says it’s time to move on and spend more time with his family and get back to his business, Double D Express.  He also says it doesn’t look things are going to change in Springfield soon.

When asked if he plans to stay involved with the Republican Party he says absolutely.

Dahl was elected into the senate in 2004 after beating Democrat incumbent Pat Welch.

Dahl’s replacement will be chosen by a vote of the Republican County Chairmen in his district.
