Some new faces for November's county board ballots

No Democratic challengers for sheriff’s elections

STERLING – The deadline for political parties to add candidates to the November general election ballot for local races was June 2.

Theresa Sheridan, 61, a Democrat, will be on the ballot as a candidate for the Dixon District 4 seat on the Lee County Board. She will be running against Republican Charlie Thomas, she said.

New candidates running for Whiteside County Board include people from districts 1, 2, and 3.

James G. Jaeger, a Democrat, and Shane Celestino, a Republican, will be facing off for District 1.

Katherine Nelson, who was appointed as the replacement for Tony Arduini, will be running for District 2 as a Democrat alongside Enrique (Rick) Cavazos, also a Democrat; Kathie K. Donahue and Linda S. Pennell will be running as Republicans.

In District 3, Democrat Kurt Dreger will be running.

The Democratic Party didn’t add any candidates for the 90th, 89th, or 74th district state house seats, the 45th district state senate seat, or the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, said Kasey Considine, chairman of the Lee County Democratic Party.

No democratic candidate will be running in the Ogle County or Whiteside County sheriff’s races, either.
