State Rep. Roger Eddy Leaves House for Education Post

Republican Roger Eddy has resigned his seat in the Illinois House.

The (Decatur) Herald & Review (http://bit.ly/GFeb5d ) reports that Eddy announced his resignation on Tuesday.

Eddy was hired last month to head the Illinois Association of School Boards, starting July 1.

He says leaving the Illinois House now gives him time to get an early jump on his new job and spend some time with his family.

Eddy is from Hutsonville and had represented the 109th House District for the past decade. He's also served as superintendent of the Hutsonville School District.

Hutsonville is about 70 miles south of Danville along theIllinois-Indiana border.
