Three members of the Volo village board kept their seats Tuesday night.

Bruce Buschick, a 58 year-old business manager, Carol Porter, a Realtor who refused to release her age, and Stephen Henley, a 63-year-old banker, won the three contested seats.


With votes from all 5 precincts counted, Porter finished first with 83 votes, followed by Buschick 82 votes and Henley with 74.

Political newcomer Cathy Wimer, a 55-year-old supply chain employee, garnered 36 votes.

Henley served on the Vernon Hills board until 2004 before moving to Volo. Buschick, a former board member, was appointed to fill a vacancy on the board in January.

Volo Village Clerk Bonnie Rydberg was re-elected with 97 votes in an uncontested race.

One of the main issues in the village board race was bringing Lake Michigan water to the village, and spurring economic development. Porter said she wanted to work on putting a traffic signal at Route 12 and Molidor Road.
