Williamson to announce run for Illinois House

Just a couple weeks after Democrat Naomi Jakobsson announced her retirement from the Illinois House, a local Republican candidate has announced her intention to seek Jakobsson's seat.

Kristin Williamson will formally declare her candidacy for the 103rd House District Tuesday afternoon in Champaign.

Williamson works at Benefit Planning Consultants in Champaign and is the Vice Chair of the Champaign County Republican Party.

Jakobsson said earlier this month that this term, which is her sixth, will be her last in Springfield.

The 103rd House District serves mainly the cities of Urbana and Champaign.
