The County Board now has two vacant seats with the resignation of John McIntyre – District 5. The seat vacated by Jeannie Biles – District 8 – hasn’t been filled yet after her resignation in August.
Democrat Elizabeth Johnston, currently vice-chair, will be acting chairman until a new election by the Board. I hear she wants the job permanently.
The goal of the Democrat Party of Illinois has been to turn formerly bright red McLean County blue. With an evenly split board and a Democrat chair they have succeeded. The Safe-T Act made law enforcement more difficult. Next up will be defunding the Justice System. Being Chicago is the goal.

Many Republicans have left Illinois, the ones left evidently don’t have time to care.
Don’t try to say Democrats care about individuals, they care about power. Illinois is now the #1 State people leave. That shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
Evidently John McIntyre resigned for unspecified health reasons.
