AURORA – Kane County Sheriff's Office Lt. Willie Mayes Sr. has announced a campaign kick-off for another run for sheriff in 2018, according to a news release.

The event is scheduled to take place from 7 p.m. May 12 to midnight May 13 at Gaslight Manor, 2485 Church Road, Aurora, the release stated.

Tickets are $50 per person, $100 per couple and $150 per family, according to the release.

Mayes, a Democrat, lost to Kane County Sheriff Donald Kramer, a Republican, in 2014 by about 30,000 votes, records show.

Mayes’ announcement comes on the heels of another announcement by Sgt. Ron Hain, who said this week he will formally announce his candidacy for sheriff as a Democrat on May 18.

The primary election is on March 20, 2018. The general election is Nov. 8, 2018.

Kramer said he has not yet decided to seek a second term.

“I’m not in a hurry,” Kramer said. “I’d like to see who else will announce. If someone else can do the job better than me, maybe I’ll step aside.”
