Parties look for edge on County Board
DeKALB – With 32 people running for 24 positions, the DeKalb County Board could see a major shakeup after the Nov. 6 election.
Party control favors Republicans, 13 to 11, on the existing board, but the election could tilt the balance of power to either party. In best-case scenarios for the respective parties, Republicans could increase their control with a 17 to 7 margin, while Democrats could seize the majority for the first time since 2009 with a 15 to 9 advantage.
Only six incumbents have no opponents and are guaranteed to return in 2013, with an even split between Republicans and Democrats. Republicans Charles Foster, John Gudmunson and Dan Cribben will return, along with Democrats Ruth Anne Tobias, Bob Brown and Sally DeFauw.
