With 19 of 19 Cook County precincts reporting and all 21 DuPage County precincts reporting, voters appear to have chosen incumbent Jim McCarthy and newcomer Jay Langfelder as Bartlett Fire Protection District trustees.

Unofficial results show McCarthy with 4,058 votes, followed by Langfelder with 3,700 votes. Patti Hanson received 1,189 votes.

The three candidates vied for two seats, which carry 6-year terms. Both seats up this election cycle are allocated for DuPage County residents, although Cook County voters also cast ballots for the seats.

McCarthy said the fire district made great strides in his first term, improving emergency response times and being among only three districts in the state to win a coveted financial transparency award. The fire district also will soon start a $2.4 million renovation to its station at 501 Struckman Blvd.

McCarthy, who has said he wants to keep taxes low, pointed out that the fire district has the third-lowest tax rate of 16 surrounding districts.
