Incumbent Barbara Oilschlager and former College of Lake County trustee Philip Carrigan are leading in a five-way race for two 6-year terms on the college board.
With all 400 precincts reporting, unofficial results show the two lead incumbent John Lumber and challengers Darl Drummond and Jeanne Marie Dauray. The results do not include vote-by-mail or early voting totals, which should be tallied by the Lake County Clerk's office soon.
One of the top issues for the trustee election pertained to student tuition and fee hikes.
In March, a majority of board members at Grayslake-based CLC rejected the administration's recommendation to boost tuition starting in the fall semester. Lumber was the lone board member in favor of the hike, while Oilschlager missed the vote, but went on record opposing the proposed increase through a statement read by CLC board Chairman Richard Anderson.
Under the plan, CLC would have enacted a $3-per-credit-hour hike for in-district tuition and fees, elevating it to $115 beginning with fall classes.
Last year, trustees voted 5-2 in favor of hiking the credit-hour tuition and fees from $109 to $112.
