Tonica lawyer announces candidacy for La Salle County State’s Attorney

Posted by wlpo on August 10, 2015

A lawyer from Ottawa thinks she has what it takes to be the next state’s attorney in La Salle County.

Karen Donnelly announced Monday that she will seek the Republican nomination for states attorney. Donnelly works at the Mueller Anderson & Associates law firm in Ottawa. She made her formal announcement in front of the La Salle County Criminal Justice Center in Ottawa.

Donnelly would likely challenge current states attorney and Democrat Brian Towne. The two have been at odds recently with Donnelly and her firm leading the charge in saying Towne’s drug enforcement team doesn’t have legal authority to make drug stops on Interstate 80.

Towne has run unopposed the last two elections.
