New County Board Member

Posted by wlpo on September 15, 2009

A replacement on the La Salle County Board says she is a fiscal conservative and an advocate of veteran’s rights.

Susan Thornton of Ottawa was selected by the La Salle County Board last night to replace Mike Beavers who resigned his District 13 board seat in order to move to Canada. Board members Bob Jakupcak, Herman Bruns and Jim Olson voted against her appointment.

Thornton says she was already planning to run for the seat next year before the opening came up. She ran before in the 1990s.
