SPRINGFIELD - Freeport's newly appointed State Representative gets a warm reception from the House Republican Leader.
Rep. Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs) welcomed Rep. Brian Stewart to the House. Stewart was sworn-in last week as the representative of the 89th District.
"I have no doubt that Brian will do a great job of representing his constituents from northwestern Illinois" says Durkin.
Stewart was appointed after former Rep. Jim Sacia resigned. "Jim Sacia is a good friend and colleague" says Durkin. "He is highly respected in Springfield and will be missed."
