Hardly a political position, but the law is the law, and people wishing to hold the office of La Salle County Circuit Clerk must run for it.
Tuesday’s winner was Democrat Andy Skoog — and by a large margin — defeating Republican Bob Vickrey by a vote tally of 26,263 to 19,376.
“Working hard — the people of La Salle County saw me going door-to-door and I think they backed me because of that,” Skoog said. “We had a small budget and made big things happen.”
Skoog said he will be a full-time circuit clerk and that his two businesses and other activities will not interfere with his efforts in office.
“My businesses are run by great managers and I have great staff members,” he said. “I ran to be a full-time circuit clerk and I’m going to do that.” Vickrey said he thought the program he implemented to begin collecting the nearly $17 million in money owed to the circuit clerk’s office from unpaid court costs and fines would have helped him at the polls.
“We identified what was the largest single fiscal issue in La Salle County; we tried to present it in a positive manner and we never did anything negative,” Vickrey said. “We felt good about the campaign. We accept it and now it’s time to move on.”

C'mon, everyone knows that was just a campaign gimmick. If that money is/was so easy to get it would be gotten by now.

Maybe Mr Skoog could talk to with the committee Mr Vickery is on for ideas on collecting that revenue.
