A rally is set in support of Madison County's Veterans Assistance Commission Superintendent Brad Lavite on the plaza of the Madison County administration building at 10 a.m. on Friday.

Lavite has been banned from his office inside the administration since March 2015 following a post-traumatic stress incident in which he had kicked out the windows of a Wood River police car. 

He has been maintaining his duties as commissioner from other locations.   

Madison County administrator Joseph Parente issued the ban against Lavite entering his office on the first floor of the administration building.

Veterans Administration psychiatrist Jane Loitman, who specializes in PTSD, had released Lavite to return to work on March 23, 2015.  

Lawsuits have been filed in state and federal court to lift the ban on Lavite.
