New Officials in LaSalle County Sworn in Officially

Posted by wlpo on December 5, 2016

Typically you don’t want to hear a judge call your name in a courtroom. But it was the high point of a wild political year for four officials.

In front of a crowded courtroom in Ottawa Monday, three newly elected LaSalle County officials and one incumbent took their oaths of office. It was a new experience for LaSalle County State’s Attorney Karen Donnelly, Circuit Clerk Greg Vaccaro, and Recorder of Deeds Karen Miller. It wasn’t the first time for LaSalle County Board Chairman Jerry Hicks, who was also sworn-in Monday morning.

Before Judge H. Chris Ryan gave the official oaths, each new official had someone speak on their behalf. The themes in all three speeches were character, commitment, and enthusiasm.

New members of the county board would be sworn in later in the day, also by Judge Ryan.
