Longtime incumbent Republican Carol Calabresa appears to have won another term for the Lake County Board in District 15.

With all 22 precincts and early votes reporting late Tuesday, unofficial results showed Calabresa ahead of Democrat Jennifer Clark, an economics professor and political newcomer, 6,560 to 6,486.


Provisional ballots and late arriving vote by mail ballots have not been counted yet.

Calabresa has held the seat since 1986 and has been serving as acting chairman in the absence of Chairman Aaron Lawlor, who is on indefinite leave from his duties.

District 15 includes Libertyville and portions of Mundelein. County board members also serve as forest preserve commissioners.
