Normal Town Council race comes to a close

Written by on April 3, 2019

NORMAL – After a long municipal election day, an incumbent remains in only one of the three seats on the Normal Town Council that were up for election.┬áKathleen Lorenz, who has been on the council since 2015, won 14.52% of the vote, allowing her to stay in office for another term.

She was not the lead vote-getter, however, as that distinction belongs to Stan Nord, who received 19.63% of the vote. Nord ran a campaign focused largely on lowering taxes.

Nord will be joined as a new member of the Town Council by Karyn Smith, an educator at Illinois State University, who won 14.01% of the vote.

R.C. McBride, fellow ISU educator and General Manager of WGLT radio, has lost his seat on the council after receiving 1.17% less votes than Smith. He was originally sworn in along with Lorenz after winning a seat on the council during the 2015 election.
