New Springfield State Rep. Named

Sangamon County Republicans have named Sara Wojcicki Jimenez to represent the 99th State House District. She'll replace former State Rep. Raymond Poe, who was recently appointed the new Illinois Department of Agriculture Director.

Jimenez has been a journalist and spokesperson. Most recently she served as Chief of Staff to First Lady Diana Rauner. She grew up in Springfield.

The 99th State House District Representative Committee consisted of Sangamon County Republican Chairman Rosemarie Long and two Sangamon County Republican Precinct Committee members within the 99th State House District. On Thursday, the Sangamon County Republican Central Committee voted to appoint Mary Sneed and Collins Piper, both Republican Precinct Committee members, to serve on the Representative Committee along with Chairman Long.

Jimenez will be sworn in as the 99th District State Representative this coming week.
