Wiekert Appointed to Illinois Supreme Court Commission

Rock Island County

Tammy Weikert has a new part-time "job." The Rock Island County Circuit Clerk has been appointed to the Illinois Supreme Court's Commission on Access to Justice. 

The Commission was created in 2012 to promote equal access to the Illinois civil courts and administrative agencies for all people, particularly the poor and vulnerable. It has 11 members who represent various parts of the legal system.

Wiekert has worked in the circuit clerk's office since 1998. She was appointed clerk by the county board in 2015, and won election to the position last fall. 

She has already served on the Illinois Supreme Court's Guidance and Training sub- committee. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
