The March 8 approval of Emma’s Landing, a 45-unit affordable rental townhouse subdivision on 7.75 acres just north of Lewis Road, became an area of contention in the April 6 mayoral race between incumbent Kevin Burns and challenger Tom Simonian.
Kane County has 319,000 registered voters and so far, the Kane County Clerk’s Office has received 9,007 early voting and mail-in ballots of the 12,234 ballots issued for the April 6 consolidated election.
A Republican Committeeman in Geneva Pct. 19, used social media to seek volunteers to make calls supporting Tom Simonian for mayor – specifically including abortion and cultural education issues – without the candidate's knowledge or permission.
Candidates for St. Charles Township Board discussed the issues in a candidate forum co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Central Kane County and the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce. The forum also featured races for St. Charles School Board, St. Charles City Council and the St. Charles Library Board.
