Kratz was appointed to the city council in November to finish former Alderman Christopher Halley's term.
Incumbent Dan Leonard, however, was successful defending his seat in Ward 3 from challenger Barbara Thornbury, a Warrenville Park District commissioner.
With all four precincts counted in Ward 3, unofficial totals show Leonard, a builder and contractor, with 243 votes and Thornbury, a business owner and substitute teacher, with 178.
Incumbent Aldermen Stu Aschauer in Ward 1 and Robert Wilson in Ward 2 both ran unopposed to retain their seats on the council.
One, 4-year term was at stake in each contest.
Some of the candidates' top issues include increased flooding on the DuPage River, thorium cleanup at the former Kerr-McGee site and downtown development.
All four aldermen will be sworn in at the May 2 city council meeting.
