Wilke wins bid for third term in Lake County Board District 16
Incumbent Democrat Terry Wilke won his bid for a third term Tuesday in Lake County Board District 16, holding off a challenge from Round Lake CPA and business owner Tim Walsh.
With all 14 precincts reporting, unofficial results showed Wilke ahead 4,919 to 3.508 votes. Early and mail ballots were not included.
"Tim Walsh is a really hard worker, a really hard charger, so I have got to give him a lot of respect," Wilke said.
Walsh said it was too early to comment.
If elected, Wilke said he would also like to work on the consolidation of local government.
