Two incumbent Elburn trustees were re-elected Tuesday night, but it was a longtime resident making her first run at office who finished with the highest vote total.

According to unofficial results and with all three precincts reporting, Patricia Schuberg finished with 240 votes, topping a field of four people seeking three 4-year terms.

"I just feel really honored the community elected me," said Schuberg, a longtime volunteer. "I feel thankful to be a part of the community of Elburn."

Trustees Jeff Walter and Ken Anderson Jr. also won re-election with 237 and 203 votes, respectively, according to unofficial results.

Another challenger, Michael Rullman, rounded out the field with 116 votes.

The biggest issue in the campaign was Elburn Station, a development approved in March that will eventually double the village's size.

Schuberg served 15 years on the village's plan commission and helped review Elburn Station.

She said growth must make the village stronger, not just bigger.

"Elburn is really at a crossroads with development," she said.

Schuberg said her goals are to ensure growth is appropriate and to help develop a tax base with more businesses and less emphasis on rooftops. "I'd like to see our storefronts full," she said.
