Kregg wins runoff for village trustee in high turnout
Jennifer Kregg scored a victory Tuesday over incumbent Tammy Bayes –186-158 – in the runoff race for Sloan Village trustee, reported Debra M. Smith, village clerk.
Voter turnout was unusually high for the runoff that pitted Kregg, 49, of the Sloan Citizens Party against two-term trustee Bayes, 52, who represented the People’s Choice Party.
“I even called the Board of Elections for more ballots,” Smith said.
The candidates each tallied 114 votes in the village election on March 19. Linda Ostempowski of Sloan Citizens won a fouryear term with 126 votes.
Kregg and Ostempowski will join trustees Caitlin Carlson, Paula Bruscani and Eric Czubaj – all of People’s Choice – on the Village Board.
