PEORIA, Ill., — Sunday, Attorney Christopher McCall announced his bid for the Peoria County State’s Attorney Office.
McCall has practiced law as a private attorney and prosecutor. He is the head of McCall Law Offices, PC, which specializes in both criminal defense and family law.
Surrounded by family and other supporters, McCall presented a speech at his firm, detailing reasons the community should vote for him in March 2020.
Judge Jodi Hoos replaced the late Jerry Brady as Peoria County’s State’s Attorney last week.
McCall says right now everyone should support Judge Hoos, but mentions that he is looking forward to the election.
Also, he said what separates him from other candidates are his initiatives.
“The reason I decided to make this announcement was simply looking at all the gun violence in Peoria county and reading the articles where a number of individuals were quoted saying they felt like they have to leave Peoria in order to be successful,” he said. “I kind of took offense to that being that I grew up here and I want to make changes in my community and I believe service is the rent we pay.”
McCall mentioned that he looks forward to working with lots of different individuals throughout the county.
