Sandy Hart will be able to continue to meet the residents of Lake County District 13.
The Lake Bluff resident walked away with a lopsided victory over challengers Anthony Soler and Robert Glueckert in Tuesday night's Democratic race, garnering more than 70 percent of the vote.
"Going door to door was the best part of campaigning," Hart said. "I met a lot of great people who are really concerned about local government."
Hart, who sits on the Lake Bluff Park District Board, will meet David Barkhausen in the November general election. Barkhausen narrowly defeated fellow Lake Bluff resident Rick Lesser by 122 votes in Tuesday night's District 13 Republican race.
"This was definitely more challenging," Hart said of the Lake County race compared to the Park Board. "It was great learning experience being able to meet the people all across the district.
Hart said she found contact with district residents focused on two main issues, jobs and quality of life.
"I'm looking forward to connecting with the residents again," she said.
