Former State Lawmaker Dies of Fatal Heart Attack


A former Illinois lawmaker is dead at the age of 48.

 

Authorities think Mike Smith suffered a fatal heart attack at his home in Canton. Smith served 16 years in the Illinois House before losing his re-election bid in 2010. He was later appointed by Governor Pat Quinn to serve on the Illinois Education Labor Relations Board, a move that drew fire from critics who questioned whether Smith was qualified for the $94,000 a year job.

 

Quinn issued a statement praising Smith as an example of “what service should be.”
