Streator County Board Member Absent Since 2012

Posted by wlpo on June 11, 2013

Even though they meet only once a month as an entire group, the La Salle County Board hasn’t had all 29 board members at a meeting yet this year.

A big reason why is Democrat Ron Dittmer of Streator.  Dittmer represents the 26th District but hasn’t been at a full board or even a committee meeting yet this year.  When it came time to hand out the quarterly per diem and mileage checks, Dittmer had no money coming to him.

Chairman Jerry Hicks hasn’t really spoken to Dittmer saying only that he thinks he’s getting treatment in southern Illinois for health issues.  He says there’s no talk of Dittmer stepping down.

Dittmer has another three years on the board after running unopposed in the November election.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
