Sheri Jesiel is set to be sworn into office as a new state representative, to replace Rep JoAnn Osmond, who submitted her resignation recently. That resignation became effective on July 1.
Jesiel was already the Republican nominee seeking election to the House in the 61st District. Her appointment to fill Osmond's vacancy now allows her to run under the title of being the incumbent, although the House will not meet again until after the Fall election.
Jesiel will face Democratic candidate Loren Karner in the fall election.
