Schuyler State's Attorney Will Run for Full Term

Rushville – Schuyler County's appointed state's attorney will run for a full term on her own. Teena Griffin was appointed to the position in April when her predecessor became a circuit judge. Griffin says the major problems the county faces include domestic violence, drug use and underage drinking. She wants to partner with local groups to address those issues. Griffin was an assistant state's attorney in McLean County when she was named to the Schuyler post. Griffin is a graduate of Western Illinois University and the University of Illinois. She will run in the Republican primary next March.
