LEMONT – Though many races were uncontested, the residents of Lemont have a made some key decisions about their representation for the next several years after the April 4 election, including the village president.
John Egofske successfully won his bid to replace outgoing village head Brian Reaves –
who opted to not seek a third term, having accepted an executive vice president position for a material handling, logistics and supply chain association in North Carolina – over current board trustee and fellow candidate Paul Chialdikas, according to preliminary results from the Will, Cook and DuPage county election commissions.
Egofske won the election by just under 500 votes, raking in 1,741 to Chialdikas' 1257.
Joining him on the board this year are new trustees Ryan Kwasneski (23.3 percent), Kenneth McClafferty (18.34) and Dave Maher (15.45), who beat out Glenn W. Pasiewicz by an estimated 17 votes for the third and final spot. All three will be new faces on the board, also beating out Tony Spinelli, Janelle Kittridge and Mary H. Styrczula Ameriks.
In a tight race, Lemont Township High School District 210, incumbents Pam Driscoll, Michael Kardas Sr. and Michael Shackel held on to their seats against challenger Raymond Negrete. The three received approximately 29.6, 26 and 24.5 percent of the vote respectively, while Negrete finished with approximately 20 percent.
