Republican state Sen. Pam Althoff has relocated her district office from Crystal Lake to McHenry because of the new, post-census legislative maps.
Her new office is at 5400 W. Elm St., Suite 103, McHenry. The office phone number of 815-455-6330 remains the same, as does its email of firstname.lastname@example.org. But the fax number has changed to 815-679-6756.
The 32nd Senate District that Althoff represents changed. Under the new map, it lost all but a sliver of Grafton and Algonquin townships but covers the rest of McHenry County into northwestern Lake County.
The Democratic Party took advantage of its control of both houses and the governor’s office after the 2010 Census to draw General Assembly and congressional maps friendly to their candidates and hostile to Republican ones. The new map splits McHenry County among five representatives and three senators.
