Sanchez, Hall prevail in Kane County Board District 24
Democrat Jarett Sanchez and Republican Roben Hall were winners in Tuesday's primaries for Kane County Board District 24.
Sanchez led with 901 votes, or 55.5 percent, against incumbent Joseph R. Haimann, who had 465 votes, or 28.6 percent.
On the Republican side, Hall lead with 354 votes, or 53.3 percent, against Billita Jacobsen, who had 163 votes, or 24.5 percent. The unofficial vote tallies included all 10 precincts.
Only Haimann supported the Longmeadow Parkway project, a proposed $135 million, 5.6-mile road with a toll bridge and passing through Algonquin, Carpentersville and Barrington Hills. All candidates live in Carpentersville.
The other candidates said the project eventually would affect taxpayers because drivers would avoid the toll bridge, causing revenues from tolls to fall below projections.
In a separate advisory vote, Dundee Township residents substantially voiced their opposition to the project, decades in the planning.
