Hicks to remain La Salle County Board Chairman despite loss

Posted by wlpo on November 7, 2014

La Salle County Board Chairman Jerry Hicks won’t lose his title even after losing his board seat.

The Democrat from Marseilles lost to Republican Mike Weiss in the race for Hicks’ District 22 county board seat. But because the board chairman is now elected by the voters every four years, Hicks will keep that job for at least another two years when it comes up for re-election.

One result of the election loss for Hicks is that he can now only vote to break ties. Before he could vote on any issue no matter the vote count.
