McLeod appears headed to sixth term as Hoffman Estates mayor
Twenty-year veteran Hoffman Estates Mayor Bill McLeod appeared headed to yet another victory Tuesday night.
With Election Day ballots in all of the village's 29 precincts counted, McLeod was leading former police Lt. Mark Mueller and former trustee candidate Nicholas Waryas with more than 58% of the vote, unofficial results showed.
McLeod had 2,913 votes; Mueller had 2,036 votes; and Waryas was a distant third with 94 votes.
The tally didn't include all the votes cast in the race. In addition to Election Day votes that hadn't yet been reported, ballots postmarked by Tuesday that arrive at election offices by April 20 will be counted, too, as will provisional ballots and early votes.
The mayor since 2000, McLeod touted his experience during the campaign. He was a village trustee for 20 years before becoming mayor.
