They beat out write-in contenders Michael Welsh, Ronald Adamson and James Mitchell; all were vying for two of the four seats on the District 428 Board. They will join Howard Solomon and Kerry Mellot, who were guaranteed victory by virtue of being the only candidates listed on the ballot.
One other undecided race remains unchanged; no write-in votes were recorded for DeKalb’s Seventh Ward, leaving incumbent Monica O’Leary the winner – by one vote – over challenger Craig Roman. She got 46 votes, to Roman’s 45. No word as yet on whether Roman will seek a recount.
