Jim Rogal fills McLean County Board vacant seat


BLOOMINGTON – The McLean County Board voted Thursday to add a Normal Democrat to fill a vacant seat in district 4.

Jim Rogal was the lone candidate remaining for the position after Sally Pyne, a Democrat who had previously served on the board, withdrew her candidacy Monday.

Rogal replaces Logan Smith, who resigned from the county board last month for a job with the City of Mesa, Arizona.

He will serve on the board for the remainder of Smith’s term – until late 2022.
