JACKSONVILLE (AP) — A Jacksonville alderman has been chosen to replace a central Illinois Republican state lawmaker who's stepped down after more than a decade in office.
GOP county heads from the current 97th House District and the new 100th House District picked 33-year-old C.D. Davidsmeyer to succeed state Rep. Jim Watson. Watson announced last month he was resigning to become the Illinois Petroleum Council's executive director.
The district includes Morgan, Calhoun, Greene, Jersey, Macoupin, Madison and Pike counties.
Davidsmeyer is scheduled to be sworn in on Wednesday. He'll fill out Watson's current term and serve a two-year term that begins next month.
