There won’t be any changes at the village’s April 18 board meeting. That’s because all three incumbent trustees were reelected.
According to unofficial election results from the Lake County clerk’s office, Trustee William Seiden led with 3,412 votes, Robert Benton followed with 2,868, and Thomas Jester took home 2,563 votes.
Longtime Deerfield resident and independent candidate James Moyer fell short at the polls Tuesday night with 2,006 votes.
"I believe the results of the election were indicative of a village with no major issues and three incumbents on the slate," Moyer said. "I believe I brought to the board's attention the importance of retail sales tax income and being more business friendly. We are all trying to advance Deerfield's agenda."
“I am pleased with the results and am looking forward to serving all of the residents of Deerfield for another term,” Seiden said.
“I'm very pleased to have the opportunity to serve the village for another four years and appreciate the confidences of the many votes received,” Jester commented.
“I'm very appreciative and grateful to the residents of Deerfield who voted to allow me another term as trustee to serve them and enable the village to continue the progress it's demonstrated over the years,” Benton said.
The newly reelected trustees all mentioned they’re looking forward to another four-year term and are focused on the future.
“I am particularly looking forward to monitoring and watching closely the real estate tax levy and the resident user fees while still maintaining, at the same time, all of the excellent village services that we all expect,” Seiden explained.
“We will continue to provide first class services to those who live and work here and to keep our costs at a minimum,” Benton added. “I'm proud to work with the mayor and my fellow trustees toward that goal.”
