Crane wins in LaSalle’s Fourth Ward by two votes

Two votes are deciding who will be LaSalle’s next Fourth Ward Alderman.

Jordan Crane wins over incumbent Mark Schneider with 165 votes.

Crane takes office next month.

LaSalle County Clerk Lori Bongartz says if not for two vote-by-mail ballots she would have had to flip a coin.

It’s up to the clerk to randomly decide who wins in the case of a tie.

LaSalle’s Fourth Ward race was the only tie in the county.
