Sangamon County Sheriff Neil Williamson will still make a political announcement next week… but he won’t be doing it in his government office now.
A media advisory Thursday… sent by Undersheriff Jack Campbell on the county government e-mail system… said Williamson would be making a political announcement.
Williamson told 970 WMAY News that he was advised by people with “political knowledge” that it would be OK to make the announcement in the government office, but he declined to say who gave him that advice.
A short time later, Williamson announced that the location would be changed.
There’s no word on the nature of the announcement, but the sheriff says it does pertain to next year’s election.
