Ken Tupy, 54, lawyer for the state Prisoner Review Board since 1998, cites his background as one-time chief of the felony division in the Sangamon County state’s attorney’s office, in addition to work for the legislature to toughen sentencing laws, as experiences that help make him the best candidate for top prosecutor in the county.

Tupy notes that the incumbent he is challenging in the Republican primary on March 20, John Milhiser, was appointed state’s attorney after Circuit Judge John Schmidt left in the middle of a term to become a judge. Milhiser, 42, was with the state’s attorney’s office from 1997-2003, and was first assistant from February 2008 to September 2010, when he was named to replace Schmidt.
