Referendums Pass, GOP Wins in Sangamon Co.

Voters in Sangamon County said yes to a pair of referendums Tuesday.
About 60 percent of Springfield voters agreed that city workers should live within city limits. That was only an advisory referendum, so alderman will ultimately decide the issue.

In the Ball Chatham school district, residents voted to allow the district to borrow more money for construction and repairs.  More than 60 percent of voters approved the measure.

Republicans made a near sweep of county-wide positions.   Only Democratic Recorded Josh Langfelder was able to win, and he was unopposed.

Republican Coroner Cinda Edwards beat Democrat Jerry Curry.

Tony Libri won another term as Circuit Clerk, defeating  Democrat Kristin DiCenso.

Auditor Paul Palazzolo topped Democrat Chris Boyster.

Republican incumbent John Milhiser won his first full term as State’s Attorney, topping Ron Stradt.  Milhiser was appointed to the job after John Schmidt left to become a judge.

Schmidt was also on the ballot.  He defeated Democrat Tom Londrigan for Circuit Judge.
