Wirsing Replacement

By  | 

A three-member republican committee has picked a successor to State Rep. David Wirsing who died earlier this month.

Dekalb County Board Chairman Robert Pritchard will fill Wirsing's Illinois House seat. The committee says Pritchard was the unanimous choice among ten candidates.

Wirsing died at his home November 16 after a sudden heart attack. He had held the seat for a decade.
