Challengers Susan Walsh and Lisa Tenuta won seats on the Mount Prospect Park District board today, along with incumbents Timothy Doherty and William Klicka.

With all 43 precincts reporting, Walsh tallied 1,918 votes in unofficial tallies to Tenuta's 1,266, Doherty's 1,630 and Klicka's 1,777. Seven candidates ran for four spots on the board.


Voters rejected incumbents Tom Reese and James Graves, plus challenger William Starr. Graves was first elected in 1995. Starr said he ran for the board not because he saw major issues with the district, but to "bring a fresh business acumen to the board," he said.

Doherty has been on the board since 2001. His campaign emphasized fiscal responsibility.

Klicka has been on the board since 1995 and his announced goal was to keep local tax bills low.

Tenuta and Walsh both ran the park board because they are against plans to reconfigure the golf course, which will close the course for at least a year. The earliest the project could happen would be 2014, according to park district officials.
