Joliet resident to fill remainder of Winfrey’s County Board term
"I look forward to working with Ms. Brass on all of the important issues in Will County and in District 8," said Board Speaker Mimi Cowan (D-Naperville). "There are many pressing issues facing the residents in Will County and it is vital that we have a full board to serve all of our constituents."
Edna Brass - District 8
“Executive Winfrey served District 8 very well and I look forward to continuing to serve our constituents at the same level,” said Brass. “I am honored to be selected to fill this position. There is much to be done in Will County, especially during these challenging times, and I am ready to get to work.”
Brass joins Herb Brooks (D-Joliet) in representing District 8, which includes Joliet Township and part of Troy Township. The next election for District 8 seats will be held in November 2020.
"I want to welcome Edna to the board and I look forward to working with her," said Republican Minority Leader Mike Fricilone (R-Homer Glen).
Brass was nominated by the Will County Democratic Central Committee and appointed by the County Executive to serve the remainder of Winfrey’s term.
