Circuit Clerk Tony Libri Retiring
After 19 years as the Sangamon County Circuit Clerk, Tony Libri is stepping down at the end of the month.
Libri, who also previously served as Sangamon County Auditor before becoming Circuit Clerk and made an unsuccessful run for Springfield mayor, did not give a reason for his retirement. A statement says he will be able to spend more time with his family.
The Sangamon County Board will appoint a new circuit clerk to fulfill the remainder of Libri's term. That post will then be up for election in 2016.
