DeKalb County Board candidate arrested

DeKALB – A 31-year-old DeKalb County Board candidate was charged last week with driving with a suspended license, records show.

Craig Genteman, of the 1500 block of Grand Drive in DeKalb, was charged with the misdemeanor, punishable with probation or up to a year in jail, at 12:10 a.m. Thursday, according to an NIU police log. Genteman also is serving 18 months of court supervision for driving under the influence of alcohol on March 1, 2013, DeKalb County court records show.

Genteman and Samuel-Louis Bandy Jr. are competing for the Republican nomination for County Board District 9.

Genteman said he was working with his attorney to resolve new charge.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to express my overall optimism with the campaign, hearing and addressing the issues that voters have in the district,” Genteman said in a prepared statement. “... In the last days of this primary, I am eager to meet with more registered voters of this district and excited to share with them my message of reform and fresh ideas to a county board sorely needing more of both.”
