About this Article

Bensenville village president Frank Soto will face a re-election challenge in April from his former political ally, Trustee Oronzo Peconio. Peconio has also assembled a new party, "Bensenville First," saying Bensenville needs "more jobs, more businesses and more common sense from village hall." But Soto counters he has worked hard to reinvent Bensenville's image and turn around its finances since the village was voted No. 1 among "America's Fastest-Dying Towns" in 2008 by Forbes magazine.
