Many of the candidates were there to watch the count, including Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar, who accumulated 131 provisional ballots in Will County, 46 more than his opponent, Jackie Traynere, a Will County Board member.
Traynere said the message from both sides of the race “resonated really well” and that village residents clearly want change given how close the election was.
“I want to thank our volunteers, my family and countless supporters who believed in a new direction in Bolingbrook. That will happen because of what we accomplished a few weeks ago, just not as swiftly as we had hoped,” Traynere said in a statement.
One candidate from Traynere’s Bolingbrook United ticket made it to the village board: Robert Jaskiewicz. He gained 80 provisional ballots Tuesday and had the third highest overall vote total among trustee candidates.
