St. Rep. Tom Demmer announces reelection bid
Dixon, Ill. -- State Representative Tom Demmer is in his first term and has decided to run for reelection. The Dixon Republican says the state’s financial trouble needs tackling, because too many priorities are already being crowded out by the pension funding problem. He thinks bringing his party out of super-minority status will help.
     One thing that’s important to Demmer is making the details of public finance more accessible to the public. He says having a lot more eyes on what happened in Dixon might have prevented about $54 million in embezzlement by the city clerk.
     Part of Demmer’s district is in northern LaSalle County.
