Print Article

ROCKFORD - Margie Mullins, who has served as Winnebago County Clerk for 11 years, has announced she will resign from her position effective Jan. 31.

Mullins, who has been employed by Winnebago County for 36 years, made her announcement in a letter dated Dec. 15. She had previously announced she would not seek a fourth term as county clerk.

"This has been a difficult decision for me, but for personal reasons I will be stepping down. Working for the county and being county clerk has been very rewarding," Mullins' letter states.

Mullins' term expires with the November 2018 general election. The primary election for the clerk's post will be on March 20. Four candidates will be on the primary election ballot.

The Winnebago County Board will declare the clerk's position vacant at its Jan. 11 meeting. County Board Chairman Frank Haney, will appoint a person to fill the vacancy. The vacancy must be filled in 60 days.

"Clerk Mullins has been professional, impartial, and deeply committed to serving our community," Haney said. "Although she was not seeking re-election and a new clerk will be elected in November of 2018, I am sad to see her go early. She has been a good partner to me as Chairman and to the County Board. On behalf of a grateful board, county, and community, I wish Margie and her family the very best in the future."

Those interested in the appointment to the county clerk position can sent letters of interest through Jan. 15 to Winnebago County Board Chairman Frank Haney, 404 Elm St, Rm 533, Rockford, IL 61101 or BoardOffice@wincoil.us.
