LA GRANGE – The four incumbents running for re-election on the Lyons Township High School District 204 Board of Education reclaimed their seats in April 4's election.

Incumbents Jessica McLean, Thomas W. Cushing, Molly B. Murphy and George Dougherty edged out challenger William M. Cassidy, who received about 15.5 percent of the vote, according to unofficial election results.

The top vote-getter was Murphy with about 23 percent of the vote, followed by McLean with 22.2 percent, Cushing with 20 percent and Dougherty with 19.2 percent, preliminary numbers show.

The four incumbents participated in a candidate forum leading up to the election, hosted March 23 by the League of Women Voters of the La Grange Area. Cassidy could not attend because of an illness, according to the league.

At the event, they touted the past accomplishments they achieved together, like the Reber Center auditorium upgrade, and agreed on continuing to focus on capital improvements, such as better Wi-Fi.

“We work well together,” Cushing said.
