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.
District 4 covers mostly the northwest part of Normal.
Rogal currently works for the Laborers International Union of America and is a member of Laborers Local 362.
He also serves as vice president of the Normal Public Library Board.
Rogal formerly worked as a legislative liaison for the Illinois Department of Corrections and was a special assistant to the chief of staff for the Illinois Senate.
