SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Illinois Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon is looking for a few good citizens.

Simon announced Wednesday there are openings for two citizen members on her Interagency Military Base Support and Economic Development Committee.

The volunteer group works to retain and reuse the state's military bases and to bolster economic connections between the facilities and their local economies.

Candidates may have experience with the military, economic development, education or government.

Current members include retired military personnel and economic development officials, four state lawmakers and representatives from various state agencies.
