Jimenez leads Illinois House in honoring former Rep. Raymond Poe

SPRINGFIELD - State Representative Sara Wojcicki Jimenez (R-Springfield) led the Illinois House of Representatives on Tuesday in honoring her predecessor, former Representative Raymond Poe, who resigned from the House last November to become the new director of the Illinois Department of Agriculture.

Poe served in the House for more than 20 years, and held a number of local posts prior to his service in the General Assembly. He was joined by friends and family in the House chamber as a series of members from both sides of the aisle rose to pay tribute to his service. The House unanimously adopted a resolution honoring Poe for his years in the legislature and wishing him all the best in his time as director of the Department of Agriculture.
