Former Democratic State Senator Deanna Demuzio has put her bid in to be the next mayor of Carlinville.  It's a job her son once held before taking a job with the State Police.  Demuzio filed for the job last week.  She'll square off against former Carlinville alderman Jim Suter on April 9th.  

Demuzio served seven years in the Illinois Senate, replacing her husband Vince Demuzio after he passed away.  Senator Sam McCann beat her out in 2010.
