Below is an excerpt from the Daily Herald's article about the DuPage County Board candidates:
"Democrats are preparing to challenge Republicans next fall for control of the DuPage County Board.
Twelve of the 18 county board seats will be up for election in November and Democrats will field candidates for all those 4-year seats in the traditional GOP stronghold.
But before the two sides square off, voters in March must choose their party's nominees. Contested Republican primary races are expected in four of the six county board districts and four of the districts will have Democratic primaries.
The filing period for the March 20 primary ended Monday.
Here's a look at where county board primary races are taking shape:
Bensenville resident Paul DeMichele and Dino Gavanes of Itasca are seeking the GOP nomination along with two incumbents -- Sam Tornatore of Roselle and Paul Fichtner of Elmhurst.
The two primary winners will face Elmhurst Democrats Ashley J. Selmon and Zahra Suratwala next November.
District 1 includes all or portions of Addison, Bensenville, Bloomingdale, Elmhurst, Glendale Heights, Itasca, Lombard, Roselle, Villa Park and Wood Dale."
