ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Jas Bilich hopes to fill the Winnebago County Board seat that will be left open by Ted Biondo.
Biondo is not seeking re-election and is currently serving as chairman of Bilich's campaign.
Bilich owns two restaurants as well as a construction company. The Republican feels he could be an asset to the county by focusing on public safety, economic growth and proper zoning.
"I definitely have lived through the years here in the county, and I want to see it prosper. I want to see it grow. I want to see it make sure it succeeds no matter what," says Bilich.
The Illinois primary is scheduled for March 20, 2018.
