Found this of all places at Politico:
— New state rep appointed: Democratic leaders in the 32nd House District appointed Cyril Nichols, the associate athletics director for City Colleges, to replace Rep. Andre Thapedi, who has stepped down after 12 years. Nichols’ district encompasses part of the South Side and south suburbs and could be redrawn with the upcoming redistricting map. Others who applied: Allyson Scrutchens, who worked for Ald. Roderick Sawyer; Kimberley Egonmwan, a General Assembly staffer; and Cook County Young Democrats Chair Chakena Perry.
A headline from The Daily Line suggests that State Rep. Nichols is a placeholder at least until the state finally re-draws the state's legislative districts. Perhaps in 2022 as Illinois considers whether or not J.B. Pritzker should remain Governor, we'll have an open seat for 32nd District state representative?
