New State Representative Replaces Costello | Alton Daily News


Replacing Jerry Costello Jr., who resigned from state legislature last week to take a high ranking job at the state’s Department of Natural Resources, is state Rep. Nathan Reitz. Democratic party leaders made the selection and Reitz was sworn in on Thursday. Costello had publicly opposed a progressive income tax.

Ideas Illinois noted President Donald Trump carried that legislative district in 2016 and said Reitz must choose between siding with the progressive income tax or with “middle-class families.”
