No Democratic candidates filed to run in the District 11 county board race in the fall.

Hart, 46, of Naperville, said her top issue was to maintain the continued financial stability of the county while keeping its portion of the property tax rate low.

Fellow board member Maher, 54, of Naperville, said he seeks to maintain control on spending, taxes and open government. He also said the county needs to continue to create policies that support an environment for job creation and growth.

District 11 is a new district that was created after an overhaul of the county board's districts and boundaries following the latest census.

Also, incumbent Chief Executive Officer Lawrence M. "Larry" Walsh on Tuesday headed off a challenge from fellow Democrat Leonard Thompson, Jr. With all 303 precincts reporting, unofficial results show Walsh with about 68 percent of the vote.

Walsh will face Republican Cory Singer in November's general election.
