Board says no to Suits
Rejects panel pick for state’s attorney
OREGON – The Ogle County Board could not agree on a replacement Tuesday for state’s attorney John B. “Ben” Roe, despite a committee recommendation to appoint a Polo attorney to the position.
“I thought the board would respect the committee process – apparently not,” said board Chairman Kim Gouker, of Byron.
Following an hourlong closed session to discuss the appointment, the board rejected the selection committee’s recommendation to appoint M. Thomas Suits, 62, by a vote of 13-11.
