May 11, 2020 – Charlie McGorray of Decatur announced his candidacy for State Representative of the 96th Illinois House District. McGorray has begun circulating petitions to run as the Republican candidate against incumbent State Rep. Sue Scherer.
“I’ve served my country in the U.S. Army and served my community for over 25 years as a member of the Decatur Fire Department,” said Charlie McGorray. “Now, I want to serve as your voice in Springfield. We need someone who will represent us, not Mike Madigan and his Chicago Machine.”
Charlie McGorray is seeking volunteers to help him collect the 500 petition signatures needed over the next ten days in order to be placed on the November 2020 ballot. However, due to the Governor’s stay at home order, McGorray filed a lawsuit on May 9 in order to collect those signatures.
