Applications Being Accepted To Succeed Rep. Rich Brauer
A process has been announced to find a replacement to serve in the 87th Illinois House District. Longtime Republican Representative Rich Brauer left the job last week to take a position with Governor Bruce Rauner's administration.
That move leaves a vacancy and GOP leaders in the district are seeking applications for those interested in the role. They've set up a website.
Applicants can submit their information through Friday at 5 p.m. Those interested must be a U-S citizen, at least 21 years old and must be a resident of the district for two years prior to the last election.
The district includes portions of Sangamon, Logan, Menard and Tazewell counties. The selection committee will include Dave Bender of the Logan County Republicans, who will serve as Chairman. Jason Huffman of the Menard County Republicans will serve as Secretary. Rosemarie Long of the Sangamon County Republicans and Mary Burress of the Tazewell County Republicans will both serve as nominating members.
