Let the campaigning begin.
Brian Vescogni of Peru has announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for La Salle County State’s Attorney. The lawyer spent nearly two decades in the state’s attorney’s office. He says he will work with law enforcement to combat the flow of illegal drugs while seeking creative ways to treat addiction. About the job he is seeking, Vescogni says “the State’s Attorney should serve with integrity and work to help keep our communities safe while also instilling the public’s trust in the office.”
The primary election is coming up in March. Current La Salle County State’s Attorney Republican Karen Donnelly hasn’t officially announced plans for re-election.
