A West Point graduate who says she wasn't afraid to ask the right questions on the Wheaton City Council says she'll do the same in Springfield as the new representative in the 42nd state House District. Jeanne Ives, a tax adviser who defeated three opponents in the Republican primary, claimed victory Tuesday over Democratic challenger William Adams, an accountant from Wheaton, in a race for a 2-year term representing the 42nd District. With all precincts reporting, unofficial results show Ives had 62 percent of the vote to Adams' 38 percent.
