Former State Representative John Anthony is no longer employed by the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Just six months after he left his position as State Representative in the 75th District, Anthony is gone from the corrections job. No official word on why ? He was working as an executive assistant to the director of the Illinois Department of Corrections. Records show he was making $10,000 a month. His last day on the job with the DOC was December 7th.
Anthony resigned from the State Legislature on June 17th to accept a position with corrections.
David Welter was appointed to replace Anthony in July and won in the November general election to retain the seat.
