Bliefnick out as Illinois State Fair manager

SPRINGFIELD – WAND News has confirmed Amy Bliefnick will not be returning as Illinois State Fair manager, a position she held for 10 years.

She says she received her notice from Governor Bruce Rauner's office and Monday will be her final day.

Bliefnick, a Decatur native, was appointed by Democratic Governor Rod Blagojevich in 2005.

Bliefnick says she was not surprised by the dismissal and does not have any immediate plans.

The change is one of many expected as the new administration takes over.
