A former TV reporter could be appointed to fill a ballot vacancy in a Sangamon County Board race this November.
The State Journal-Register reports Catie Sheehan Gibson could be appointed this week to replace Bill Moss as the Republican candidate in county board district 28.
Moss dropped out of the race because he is moving out of that district. Gibson was a reporter at Channel 20 for three years and now works as a spokesperson for State Treasurer Dan Rutherford.
She would face Democrat Marilyn Mancini this fall.
