Election races taking shape in Geneva

Alderman, school, library board see challengers

GENEVA – Candidates have filed their nominating petitions in the April 2 consolidated election for Geneva alderman, District 304 school board and Geneva Public Library District.

Geneva has races for three of five aldermanic seats.

Incumbent 2nd Ward Alderman Michael Clements and challenger Tad Hemming have both filed.

With 4th Ward Alderman James Radecki not seeking re-election, newcomers Paula Merrington and Gabriel Kaven will vie for the 4th Ward seat.

Incumbent 5th Ward Alderman Craig Maladra will vie with former 5th Ward Alderman Tom Simonian. Simonian also unsuccessfully ran for mayor, losing to Kevin Burns.

First Ward Alderman Tara Burghart will seek re-election without a challenger, as will 3rd Ward Alderman Dean Kilburg.

For Geneva District 304 school board, nine candidates are vying for three seats.

The only incumbent is Michael McCormick as Mary Stith and Kelly Nowak are not seeking re-election.

The candidates are Jessica Lynn Breugelmans, Jill Johnson, Katherine Frye, Alicia Saxton, Kim Edwards, Al Gaston and Robert Cabeen. Cabeen has been a candidate for school board in the past.

Five candidates are seeking four open seats on the Geneva Public Library Board.
