Anita Speckman was iroquois County's first ever finance director and will now serve as Kankakee County's first administrator.
No vote on new county official

By David Giuliani 


Last month, Kankakee County announced the hiring of its first county administrator.

But the county board never approved the appointment. Officials said the board didn’t need to.

Anita Speckman was appointed by the board’s chairman, Andy Wheeler, R-Kankakee. He said he did so after members of the board’s executive committee reviewed applications, interviewed candidates and recommended Speckman, Iroquois County’s former finance director. Wheeler said he did not sit in on the interviews.
