District 3 represents portions of Lindenhurst and Old Mill Creek and the unincorporated area of Lake Villa Township.

Dunham said he is a "fiscal hawk" who wants to improve communication between district residents and Lake County on important issues.

A village trustee for nearly nine years, Dunham said "my government and military experience gives me a unique perspective on public service."

Newton, 49, was appointed in March to fill a vacancy left by former county board Chairwoman Suzi Schmidt, who went on to serve in the state Senate. Newton announced in mid-July he will seek re-election to the seat.

A Democratic candidate for the seat has not yet surfaced.
