BLOOMINGTON – A Republican on the McLean County Board has announced her candidacy for re-election.
Susan Schafer, who represents District 9, will seek a fourth term on the board. She was first elected in 2010.
In a news release, Schafer said during her time on the board she helped create the McLean County Mental Health Action Plan, which helps those with behavioral health problems.
“I am committed to continuing to advance services and supports for youth and adults with behavioral health needs and to eliminate the stigma for those grappling with mental health issues,” said Schafer.
“Additionally, if I have the honor of being re-elected, I will continue to focus on improving the overall financial and operational performance of the McLean County Nursing Home to provide care for elderly residents of our community,” she added.
