Karrie Alms, prominent community leader announced her candidacy for Peoria County Board seat, District #3, occupied by 18 year Democrat incumbent, Lynn Pearson. Mrs. Alms made her announcement during the Republican 2nd Ward breakfast this morning. It is my opinion that Mrs. Karrie (John) Alms, a long time friend and fellow campaigner will have the support of the Republican Central committee.
The County Board is composed of 12 Democrats and 6 Republicans. There is no doubt that a better balance of political parties would be an asset to Peoria County.
