Joe Terrell fills Winnebago County Board seat vacated by John Cabello
Online Staff Report
Joe Terrell (R) was sworn in to serve the remainder of the unexpired term on the Winnebago County Board at the board’s Thursday, Sept. 27, regular meeting. The seat was vacated when board member John Cabello (R) resigned to accept his current position as Illinois State Representative.
“I am honored to serve on the county board,” Terrell said. “I believe the residents of District 8 deserve to have the same level of representation as residents of the other 13 county board districts. I plan to spend the next two months helping the county board move forward with initiatives that provide limited government, fiscal responsibility and free markets.”
Terrell will serve until the end of November when the newly-elected board is sworn in. At that time, because of redistricting, the position Terrell is filling will be eliminated.
Incumbent county board member Kay Mullins has the Republican nomination to fill the new District 6 position. Terrell said he fully supports and endorses Mullins in the Nov. 6. general election for that District 6 seat.
