A Chicago lawmaker known for her musical spin on Springfield issues died this morning.
Esther Golar was a state representative from the city’s south side.
It was known that Representative Golar was sick with cancer for a few weeks now.
Recently, her illness was put on full display in the House of Representatives. There were some critical bills calling for a vote, and Democrats needed every vote they could get.
Democratic Representative Jehan Gordon-Booth was close with Golar.
