[December 02, 2008]  On Monday, the Logan County Board elected newcomer Terry Carlton (pictured at left) as chairman, with eight-year member Pat O'Neill elected vice chairman.

InsuranceCarlton is a graduate of the Logan County Leadership Academy and the Excellence in Leadership Program at Bradley University. A former supervisor at Caterpillar in Peoria, Carlton currently works at Integrity Data as custom sales manager. O'Neill, who retired from Kroger, works for Pepsi-Cola.

"We can make Logan County a great place for people to build their future," Carlton noted. "To start, we will develop a clear vision for the county's future. Then we will connect our vision to strategic initiatives and goals.

"The people of Logan County have chosen us. We'll roll up our sleeves and get to work."

Carlton, Bill Martin, Jan Schumacher and Dave Hepler were sworn in as new board members Monday by Judge Thomas Harris. They join O'Neill, John Stewart, Chuck Ruben, Rick Aylesworth, T.W. "Terry" Werth, Robert Farmer and Gloria Luster on the board.

Also sworn in were State's Attorney Mike McIntosh, Circuit Clerk Carla Bender and Coroner Robert Thomas.

Later this month Carlton will appoint a replacement for the county board seat vacated by McIntosh.

Carlton requests that Republicans living in District 6 who are interested in serving on the board submit a letter of interest and a resume by Dec. 8 to the office of the Logan County Board, P.O. Box 39, Lincoln, IL 62656. The letter should include why the candidate is interested in serving on the board, what priorities he or she would like to see the board pursue, and what his or her vision is for the future of Logan County.
