Brian Towne launches re-election campaign

Posted by wlpo on August 2, 2015

The man in charge of putting bad guys and girls behind bars in La Salle County wants to keep doing the job.

Democrat Brian Towne announced over the weekend that he will seek re-election next year as La Salle County State’s Attorney. He first became state’s attorney in 2006, taking over for Joe Hettel. The two times Towne has won re-election, he ran unopposed.

The 47-year-old says while felony crime has fallen 33 percent since he was elected, there is still work to be done. He says drugs is the biggest cause of crime in La Salle County.
