PEORIA, Ill. — After being appointed to the position, Jodi Hoos says she plans to run for Peoria County State’s Attorney in 2020.
Hoos was appointed to fill the position left vacant after Jerry Brady died in June. She had previously worked in the office under Brady, before becoming a judge in the 10th judicial circuit in Peoria County.
“Jerry Brady was just a great guy, he was a great boss, a great State’s Attorney,” says Hoos. “He really showed you what a public servant is.”
Hoos will be the first woman to hold the position in the county.
“It’s a great honor. I realize that I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for a lot of other people before me. I just think it’s great, as a society, we’re moving forward.”
Local attorney Chris McCall will also be running for State’s Attorney in 2020.
