City primary election results - February 26

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Jared Holbrook wins the Republican nomination for Quincy's 3rd Ward alderman in Tuesday's primary.

Holbrook received 236 votes to defeat challengers Ken Hultz (106) and Rich Nichols (19).

Holbrook will face Democrat Mike Martin in the April election.

This is an open seat because current alderman Kyle Moore is running for mayor.

In Macomb, incumbent Dennis Moon defeated former alderman Ed Lavin 263-176 to win the alderman at-large seat.

Just a handful of votes were cast in the Ward 2 race, and every vote counted as Steve Wailand, a junior at Western Illinois University defeated incumbent Kay Hill by just one vote, 17-16.

And there will be a runoff in April for the Ward 5 seat between incumbents Clay Hinderliter and Tim Lobdell.

Hinderliter was the top vote getter in a 3-person race with 53 votes, but he only got 46% of the vote when he needed more than 50% to win outright.

The next top vote getter was Tim Lobdell with 33 votes.  Coming in third was Macomb high school senior David Dunn with 29 votes.

Because of redistricting in Macomb, the city will go from seven wards to five.
