A local state representative has announced his intention to seek another term in office. 102nd District Representative Brad Halbrook will seek a second term in the Illinois House.
Halbrook, a Republican from Shelbyville, says he enjoys serving his district and wants to continue fighting for his constituents.
Halbrook says after the budget battle this year in Springfield, it’s not going to get any easier going forward.
Halbrook says term limits are still an issue in Springfield, but the need for the fair redistricting of Illinois will also be coming up with the 2020 census.
Halbrook was the sponsor of House Bill 1896 that was signed into law. That bill limited the amount of funds that townships can keep in their accounts.
