Three new aldermen were elected to the Plano City Council on Tuesday, according to unofficial totals from the Kendall County Clerk's Office.
In Ward 1, Barbara Nadeau defeated challenger Michael Scott Wankel, capturing 156 votes to Wankel's 120. Nadeau will replace incumbent Alderman Melody Herreid, who did not run for re-election, in that ward seat.
Nadeau, 59, works for Senior Services Associates coordinating a national volunteer program. In a questionnaire submitted to the Plano Record, Nadeau outlined a variety of priorities if she were elected.
"My priorities include better oversight of city finances, enhancing economic development and recreational opportunities, and working to see comprehensive plans initiated and fulfilled for our streets and parks," she said.
In Ward 2, Jamal Williams defeated incumbent Alderman Robert A. Hyde and challenger John E Fawver, with Williams capturing 115 votes to Hyde's 59 votes and Fawver's 54 votes. Hyde, first elected in 2009, was running for his third term as alderman.
Williams, 45, is a respiratory therapist at a facility in Bolingbrook. In a questionnaire submitted to the Plano Record, said he would like the city to pursue businesses in the second ward.
"There is a lot of open land and opportunity in this ward," he said. "We just need the right people at the table to foster profitable agreements to allow and attract long term relationships with potential clients."
Ward 4 Alderman Jeff Johnson did not run for re-election, so resident Thomas A. Johns, who ran unopposed, is the new Ward 4 alderman.
Plano Mayor Bob Hausler ran unopposed in Tuesday's contests, along with City Clerk Kathy Miller, City Treasurer Janet E. Goehst, and Ward 3 Alderman Stephen DeBolt.
