No surprise in village elections

T here were no unexpected results in Tuesday’s village elections.

As expected, all four incumbents were reelected to office.

Mayor Peter Telisky, Trustee Marge Mohn, and Justice Julie Eagan were reelected to a second term in office while longtime Trustee Mike LaChapelle was also chosen by his constituents to serve another term.

The results didn’t come as a surprise as all four candidates ran unopposed.

Donna Filomio, who received the Republican nomination to run for one of two village trustee positions, was on Tuesday’s ballot, but she had made the decision earlier this month to drop out of the race because of medical concerns and asked voters to remove her from consideration.

The lack of intrigue and a snowstorm that dumped more than six inches of snow seemed to depress voter turnout as less than a 100 people showed up at the polls.

According to the County Board of Elections, Telisky received 79 votes; LaChapelle, 78; Mohn, 75; Filomio, 6; and Eagan, 81. There were also two write-in candidates for mayor but those names weren’t available before press time.

All results are unofficial until absentee ballots have been counted and certified by the board of elections

The results guarantee the makeup of the village board will remain unchanged for the third consecutive year.

Telisky, Mohn, and LaChapelle, all of whom ran on the Democratic Party lines, were all elected to two year terms. Eagan’s term is for four years.

The board will host its organizational meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, April 1. A regular meeting will follow.
