Cass Co. Election results

    The preliminary results of the Cass County April elections have been received. It should be noted that these results are those available at press time, and are not the final tallies.
    The area has witnessed a flurry of political activity with several contested races.
    In Beardstown, mayoral candidate Leslie Harris received 421 votes, beating out Tim Harris (377), Tom Cooper (188), and TJ Erickson (61).
    Beardstown city clerk incumbent Brian “Petie” Ruch received 792 votes, defeating Marc Reich (248).
