Race for a La Salle County Board seat heats up in Peru

Posted by wlpo on October 25, 2010

Take a drive through Peru and you’ll see plenty of signs promoting either the republican or democrat running for the local county board seat.

Democrat Art Rigby is being challenged by republican Bob Vickrey in next Tuesday’s election.

One of the topics in the race has been the county nursing home. Rigby says he thinks voters should decide whether the county keeps ownership of it.

Vickrey calls sex abuse claims and lawsuits at the nursing home unforgivable but stops short of saying the county should sell or lease the building.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
