SAVANNA — Tony McCombie said Tuesday she was seeking the Republican nomination for the 89th District.
Under redistricting, her Savanna home is in the 89th. She has served as the 71st District representative since 2017.
The primary is June 28.
The 89th District includes Carroll, Jo Daviess, Ogle, Stephenson, Boone, Winnebago and DeKalb counties.
“I look forward to introducing myself, listening and earning the support of all voters who crave a better direction for Illinois,” said McCombie in a news release. “I’m guided by conservative principles, common sense and am committed to delivering results.”
McCombie owes Blue Appraisals LLC, which appraises real estate in Iowa and Illinois, and she also serves as a broker of real estate with Mel Foster Co. The Western Illinois University graduate was a member of the Savanna City Council and then mayor of Savanna.
McCombie said her legislative priorities remain education, job growth, ethics reform, and public safety.
McCombie first won a legislative seat in 2016, defeating incumbent Mike Smiddy. She has twice fended off challenges by Joan Padilla in 2018 and 2020.
