Davis praises legislative appointment for Wojcicki Jimenez
U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) praised Gov. Bruce Rauner's choice of Sara Wojcicki Jimenez (R-Springfield) as the replacement for longtime 99th district legislator Raymond Poe.
Poe resigned after Rauner appointed him director of the Illinois Department of Agriculture.
“As a person who has worked in the highest levels of state government, Sara has the experience needed to hit the ground running at this critical time,” Davis said. “And as the mother of a young family, including twin boys, something we both have in common, she understands the lasting impact decisions made in Springfield today will have on the future of our children and grandchildren. I am confident that Sara will be a relentless advocate for the people of Sangamon County and I look forward to working with her on a variety of issues.”
Wojcicki Jimenez has been First Lady Diana Rauner's chief of staff for almost a year. Prior to that she held several communication positions in state government and also has a background as a broadcast journalist.
She will be sworn in this week.
