Winnebago County Board swears in new member

Posted: Updated:

The newest member of the Winnebago County Board didn't have to run for the job.  He's been appointed.

Joe Terrell officially takes over for John Cabello after a unanimous board vote Thursday night. Cabello stepped down after he was appointed as 68th District State Representative.  The Republican is also running for that office, against Democrat Carl Wasco.

Terrell's time on the board will be limited though.  His seat disappears after the election because of re- districting.
