Shelbyville Republican Brad Halbrook will be sworn in as the 109th District State Representative on Tuesday.

Halbrook, the Shelby County Republican Chairman, was chosen by the other Republican Party Chairmen of the counties that make up the 109th District.  The Shelbyville businessman will replace Roger Eddy of Hutsonville, who resigned to take the job as Executive Director of the Illinois Association of School Boards.

The swearing-in ceremony will take place on Tuesday, April 10, at 11:45am at the Shelby County Courthouse in Shelbyville in Courtroom A.  Judge Kimberly Koester will lead the ceremony, with family, friends and supporters of Halbrook expected to be in attendance.  

Halbrook has run his own fencing company for 18 years.  He has been married to his wife, Linda, for 29 years.  They have two children, Ashli and Austin, and currently live on an 80-acre homestead in rural Shelby County.  

Halbrook is also the Republican nominee for the new 110th House District in the November election.  He is pro-life and supports a platform of repealing the 67% tax hike, freezing property taxes and increased transparency in state spending.  He has vowed to work to cut spending, reform the state pension system, and protect the 2nd Amendment.
