County Board Seat In La Salle Remains Vacant

Posted by wlpo on October 14, 2010

Anyone in La Salle interested in serving on the La Salle County Board?

La Salle County Board Chairman Jerry Hicks says he is still searching for a replacement for Democrat Kelly Reffett.  She resigned September 13th after her job as executive director of the Kankakee County Red Cross kept her from attending board meetings.

Last month, Hicks thought he had Dan Mercer of La Salle as the replacement in the 12th district.  Mercer, a former teacher at L-P, bowed out though because of personal reasons.

By state statute, the board needs need to appoint someone to fill the vacancy within 60 days.  The seat isn’t up for re-election until 2012.

If you’re interested, call the county board office.
