Sen Forby

Sen. Forby, a former farmer and businessman and a resident of Benton, received one of this year’s Illinois Electric Cooperatives’ Public Service Awards. Sen. Forby said, “I have the bottom 13 counties of Illinois and down there our biggest issue is jobs. That is mainly what I work on. The co-ops have done an excellent job in my district and they are fantastic to work with. The biggest thing a state legislator can do is listen and when they call, I listen.”
