State Representative Brad Halbrook Announces Reelection

State Representative Brad Halbrook announced on Wednesday that he is running for reelection in the newly drawn 107th District. Representative Halbrook is from Shelbyville and says that he is excited about the new district. Halbrook is the current 102nd district State Representative.  Halbrook lost a lot of the eastern territory including parts of Douglas, Edgar, Vermillion, and Champaign Counties, and picked up parts of Effingham, Montgomery, Christian, Cumberland, and Macon Counties. 


Representative Halbrook says that he has many goals moving forward, and he knows the area very well being born in Pana.



Representative Halbrook is proud of his many accomplishments in office, including a bill on capping funds for townships.



There is a lot riding on this election and Representative Halbrook wants everyone to be aware of the big issues that Illinois will be facing in the next 5-10 years.



The hope is to get out and meet with local units of government, to be able to see where Representative Halbrook can help and make things easier for local government. 



Halbrook was elected State Rep in the 102nd District in 2016 and previously served as State Rep in the 110th District from 2012-2015.  He and his wife Linda live in Shelbyville and operate a small family farm there.
