PEORIA (25 NEWS) - A local state representative has announced his campaign for Secretary of State in Illinois.

State Representative Dan Brady, who has held the position since 2001, made the announcement Wednesday at three stops around the state, including Bloomington.

“I am running for Secretary of State to build the long-needed foundation our state needs to thrive. I will focus on partnering with the brightest innovators and technology experts this state has to offer, addressing not only service efficiency, but issues of cyber-security and identity protection,” said Brady. “The Secretary of State office serves as the backbone for our state, without it our economy and government would not function. But simply functioning shouldn’t be good enough.”

He’s the first Republican to enter the race.

Outgoing Secretary of State Jesse White has been in the position since 1998.
