Governor-Elect Pritzker Says He’ll Live in Springfield At Least Part-Time

SPRINGFIELD — Gov.-elect J.B. Pritzker says he will live at least part-time at the Illinois governor’s mansion in Springfield.

Pritzker tells The Chicago Tribune that he and his wife will do a lot of commuting to their Chicago home as their 16-year-old daughter and 14-year-old son will stay at their current schools.

The billionaire Democrat defeated current Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner in last week’s election and will take office in January.

Rauner and first lady Diana Rauner oversaw private fundraising for a roughly $15 million renovation of the governor’s mansion that began in early 2015 and was finished this year.

The project included a new roof and HVAC system and construction of a visitor center for the mansion that was built in 1855.
