The alderman representing Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan's southwest side ward has decided not to seek re-election.

The 13th Ward Alderman Frank Olivo will not try to run for another term.

He hasn't commented but a Madigan spokesman says Olivo is quitting for health reasons.

Before the decision, both Olivo and Marty Quinn -- another Madigan supporter -- had filed for the seat.
