Thank you 4000+ Voters and Many Friends and Supporters!

The election for Kane County Board Member for the 13th District was very close. After all the early votes, Election Day votes and all the mail ballots received up until Election Day were counted, I led the incumbent by only 34 votes. However, mail ballots that were sent to voters who requested them but were not yet received are to be counted until November 22, provided they bear a postmark no later than November 8. As of November 10, mail ballots increased my lead to 81 votes. There are still about 300 mail ballots unreturned in District 13, though as the days go forward, I would expect fewer to come in with the timely postmark.
I’m confident that I will be the official winner, but we do need to wait for the mailed ballot deadline.
Again, thank you to those who voted for me, contributed to my campaign expenses, made calls or knocked on doors or displayed a yard sign!

Michael Linder, of St. Charles, has announced his candidacy for election to the Kane County Board in the 13th District. His election will take place on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, and will be for a four-year term beginning December 2022.

Michael has lived in Kane County all of his life, being raised and educated in St. Charles.  He has a varied background in business, teaching and organized labor.  Michael is now a retired teacher and union activist and has the time and energy to devote to the responsibility of a Kane County Board Member, and will be proud to represent the 13th District.

Kane County is a great place to live, work, raise a family, and enjoy the open space opportunities afforded by the Kane County Forest Preserve, the community park districts and cities.  The Fox River is an asset that many suburban communities can only wish they had as a focal point of outdoor recreation and beauty.
