Lawyer nominated for county board vacancy

Local News

CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — The county board may have its pick to fill a seat vacant since April.

Attorney Tracy Douglas will be nominated to fill the open District 6 seat at next week’s meeting.

The seat was vacated when Josh Hartke resigned in April.

In May, county Democrats picked Charles Young to fill the seat, but board chair Pius Weibel rejected the nomination saying enough notice was not provided about the vote.

It will take a majority vote to appoint Douglas to the board.
