Pike County Wants Schock to Pay for Special Election
A second western Illinois county would like its former congressman to pay for the special election to replace him.
The Pike County Board Monday agreed to send a letter to former Congressman Aaron Schock, asking him to cover the cost of the special primary in July and general election in September.
Pike County expects to spend up to $110,000 on the elections, money that is not in the county’s budget.
Earlier, the Marshall County Board sent a letter to Schock asking him to reimburse them or send them a certified check for what the election will cost them.
