Holbrook Ready to Replace St. Clair County Clerk

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A former state lawmaker says he's been asked to replace a St. Clair County clerk who resigned Wednesday after an employee accused him of sexual harassment.

 

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that Tom Holbrook, a Democrat and former state representative, says he's been asked to serve and is willing to take the post.   The appointment would need to be approved by the county's board. Holbrook says he expects his appointment to be approved at a meeting Monday. He currently leads the Illinois Pollution Control Board.

Bob Delaney, the former county clerk, resigned Wednesday after an employee accused him of discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful termination. He denied any wrongdoing.
