ALGONQUIN – Two newcomers and one incumbent won seats on the Algonquin Village Board, according to preliminary results.  

Six candidates were running for three seats in Tuesday’s election. Algonquin trustees are elected by voters from McHenry and Kane counties.

Longtime trustees Bob Smith and Brian Dianis followed close behind with 809 and 770 votes, respectively. Challenger Greg Ligman received 728 votes.
