Josh Barnett was first elected to the McLean County Board in 2016.

McLean County Board member Josh Barnett has announced he plans to seek a second term on the board next year.
“I will continue to support McLean County’s behavioral health initiatives, advocate for investment in rural infrastructure, and promote economic development to diversify and grow our local workforce and economy,” Barnett said.

The Republican Barnett serves District 10, which covers Bloomington’s east side.
