REPUBLICAN COUNTY CHAIRMEN TO CHOOSE NEW SENATOR

 

Republican County Chairmen will have the responsibility of selecting a person to serve the remainder of Senator Frank Watson's term, following his retirement.  We talked with Bond County Republican Party Chairman Curt Haas who thanked Frank Watson for his years of service in the Illinois House and Senate.  Haas then explained the selection process.  He said that each Republican County Chairman will have a weighted vote based upon the number of votes cast for Frank Watson in the November 8 General Election.  That weighted vote will determine who serves as the next Senator from the 51st Legislative District. 

 

There will be an application process for securing a list of persons from whom to choose.  If you are interested in applying for this appointment, contact Curt Haas at 664-1084 for an application and additional information.  Curt said they have 30 days from Frank's official retirement on February 16 to select a new Senator.
