Fender, Klemm, Jennings win supervisor races

Three township supervisor primaries were decided Tuesday night in an election with light voter turnout across the county.

Huntley Village Board member Pam Fender won the primary for Grafton supervisor, collecting 780 votes. The former Grafton administrator bested her rival and incumbent Supervisor Linda Moore, who tallied 598 votes, according to unofficial results but with all precincts and early votes counted. Challenger Martin Waitzman finished in second, ahead of Moore, with 618 votes.

In the race for Algonquin Township supervisor, incumbent Diane Klemm held off her primary challenger, collecting 777 votes. Former McHenry County Board member Marc Munaretto received 622 votes.

For Nunda Township supervisor, a race with no incumbent, Kelvin Jennings unofficially won the primary by just 12 votes. He collected 945 votes, topping Bridget Provenzano, 933 votes, and Kerry Leigh, 421 votes.

All results are unofficial until certified by the clerk.

In the primary for Nunda Township road commissioner, Mike Lesperance held a four-vote lead over Robert Parrish, 892 to 888. Incumbent Donald Kopsell ran a distant third with 717 votes.

Results were delayed Tuesday night because of a glitch with the reporting from two polling places in Grafton Township, Clerk Katherine Schultz said. That delayed reporting for absentee and early voting counts, she said.
