Cecola headed for victory in Barrington Hills president race
Brian Cecola appears headed for victory in the race for Barrington Hills village president.
With Election Day ballots in all of the village's 11 precincts reported, Cecola was leading Barrington Hills Park District board member Dennis Kelly 497 to 317, unofficial results showed.
The tally doesn't include all the votes cast in the race. Mailed-in ballots postmarked by Tuesday that arrive at election offices by April 20 will be counted, as will provisional ballots and early votes.
Village President Martin McLaughlin didn't seek reelection, having last fall won a seat in the Illinois House representing the 52nd District.
If he loses, Kelly's time in local politics isn't over. The park board's president, he was elected to a 4-year term in 2019, so he's set to serve until 2023.
