Kendall County State's Attorney Eric Weis announced last week that he will be a candidate for re-election in 2020. A longtime assistant state's attorney is also retiring. 

Weis was sworn in as Kendall County State's Attorney in 2006, and successfully ran for re-election in 2008, 2012 and 2016.

Weis has only had one opponent during that eleven-year span.  No candidate has stepped forward to run against him next year.

Weis also spoke Tuesday about his plans if he is re-elected Kendall Co. State's Attorney.

WSPY's Jim Wyman asked Weis about the retirement of Assistant State's Attorney Bob Dore.

Weis began his legal career with the Kendall County State’s Attorney’s Office in 1995 and was sworn in as an assistant state’s attorney in 1997. He became First Assistant State's Attorney in 2002.

Weis was admitted to the Illinois Bar as well as the Federal Bar in 1997 after graduating from the Northern Illinois University College of Law.
