Urbana retains Laurel Prussing as mayor and Michael Langendorf ousts daughter of congressman Tim V. Johnson to complete the sweep of Democratic city alderpersons. (Ed. note: WCIA website had the statistics listed incorrectly on its site this morning. Stevenson won.) Champaign retains LaDue and Dodds, while Kyles defeats Gordon in the not-so-heated-races for District 1 for Champaign city council.
Big news? The County increases sales tax by 1% to help fund its schools, and the Urbana Park District will bring in an extra $.15 on every $100 of property assessed.
Bad day for conservatives, it seems.
