A Republican who used to sit on the DeKalb City Council appears to have won the seat for the 69th State Representative District, according to unofficial vote totals.

With 43 of 106 precincts reporting, or 41 percent reporting, Republican Joe Sosnowski has 12,577 votes, or 64 percent of the vote, according to The Associated Press. Sosnowski served on the DeKalb City Council from 1999-2003. He now lives in Rockford.

He has a bachelor’s degree in English from Northern Illinois University and is a licensed real estate agent. Currently, he is the director of advancement at Rockford Christian School.

Democrat Ray Pendzinski had 6,112 votes, or 31 percent of the vote, and Green Party candidate Dan Lindsey had 919 votes, or 5 percent of the vote.

The seat seat currently is held by Ron Wait, R-Belvidere, who did not run for re-election.
