There will be a race for the 107th State Representative seat in the March 2018 primary. Republican Adam Smith of Marion County yesterday announced his candidacy for the 107th district State Representative seat. Smith is a businessman in Marion County, owning Smith Truck Service and is also a real estate agent at Coldwell Banker in Centralia. Smith is also currently a member of the Marion County Board. With Smith’s announcement, it means two Republicans have now announced their intentions to run for the State Representative seat. Effingham Businessman Brian Milleville announced his intention to run for the seat earlier this month. The seat is open after current State Representative John Cavaletto announced recently he will not seek another term.
