On Monday night a candidate will be chosen at a Republican caucus to replace State Senator Randy Head in District 18. Rochester resident Amy Roe will be one of those candidates to be considered at the caucus in Peru.
Head stepped down to become Chief Deputy Prosecutor in Pulaski County.
Roe says public service has been her goal and this opportunity altered her plans somewhat.
Born and raised in Fulton County, Roe graduated from Rochester HS in 1998.
Locally, Roe has worked as Executive Director of the Fulton County Chamber of Commerce and President of Fulton County H.O.P.E. (Healing through Opportunity, Positivity and Empowerment).
Roe says running for the District 18 seat when election time comes may be something she considers whether chosen in this caucus or not.
The caucus will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, at the Miami County 4-H Community Building.
The individual selected at the September 9 caucus will fill the remainder of Sen. Randy Head's term.
