Primary in the books
Krebsbach edges Suydam
By STU MERRY

Incumbent Ron Krebsbach edged past challenger Barry Suydam in the preliminary round for county commissioner in Tuesday’s Primary Election. Krebsbach picked up 1,564 votes (56.98 percent), while Suydam tallied 1,178 (42.91 percent). The two will square off again in November’s General Election to see who will represent District 2 (northwest McLean County) in the county commission.
And it’s plain to see, McLean County voters seem to like this vote by mail idea. Tuesday’s Primary Election was the inaugural process where there were three voting centers in the county, and voters were given the option to vote by mail.
