Jefferson County Board Chair Lindemann Running for Illinois House

MT. VERNON — With State Rep. Terri Bryant seeking the Senate seat being vacated by outgoing Senator Paul Schimpf, Jefferson County’s board chairman has announced he will seek the seat Bryant is leaving in the Statehouse.

Cliff Lindemann of Bluford will seek the Republican nomination in the race for the Illinois House District 115 seat. He says lower level governments are struggling because of what the state has been doing.

Lindemann believes anyone who knows him will tell you that he will bring two qualities much needed in Springfield, honesty and fairness.

Lindemann has served on the Jefferson County board for five years. He took over as county board chairman in 2018.
