In an eight-way Republican race for three District 2 seats on the DuPage County Board, Oak Brook Trustee Elaine Zannis held onto the lead throughout the night Tuesday with Elmhurst Mayor Pete DiCianni and Bloomingdale Police Department member Sean Noonan of Elmhurst trading spots for second- and third-place.
With all 159 precincts reporting, Zannis finished first with 7,581 votes, followed by DiCianni with 7,033 and Noonan with 6,642, according to unofficial results.
Other candidates were Mike Loftus of Lisle with 5,565 vote, Jim Long of Downers Grove with 5,009, Lombard Trustee Zachary Wilson with 4,773, , Rafael Rivadeneira of Elmhurst with 4,466 and Charles Mueller of Elmhurst with 3,693.
No incumbents sought re-election. The three Republicans will face Democrat Elizabeth Chaplin of Downers Grove in November.
Zannis, an Oak Brook trustee for six years and whose term expires in 2013, pledges to keep taxes low and foster economic growth in DuPage County, according to her campaign website.
DiCianni, who has served two years as mayor, said stormwater management, intergovernmental cooperation, reduction of costs and lower taxes are key issues he will tackle.
Noonan, a police officer for nine years, said he will concentrate on job growth, job retention, public safety and fiscal responsibility.
