Two Republicans, One Democrat to Take Seats on LaSalle County Board Monday Night

Posted by wlpo on December 5, 2016

Three men will attend their first meeting as LaSalle County Board members after taking their oath of office.

Judge H. Chris Ryan will swear in the two new Republicans and one Democrat, among the rest of the board, before the meeting starts Monday night. Five incumbents will also take the oath, having come out ahead in November.

New county board members for the GOP include Curtis Faber, who will fill the seat left by retiring Democrat Stephen Abel, and Timothy Geary. The new Democrat on the board is David Torres, who beat incumbent Sandra Billard.

The new members bring the balance to 18 GOP and 11 Democrat seats on the County Board. The Chairman remains a Democrat, as Jerry Hicks held on to his seat in a close race last month.
