Several candidates filed for Kendall County Board, Circuit Clerk, Coroner, and State's Attorney on the first day petitions could be turned in on Monday.

Kendall County Clerk Debbie Gillette produced a list of candidates to WSPY.

In Kendall County Board District 1, two Republicans have filed thus far. They are Brian DeBolt of Plano and incumbent Scott Gengler of Yorkville, who was appointed to fill the remainder of John Purcell's term when Purcell won election as Mayor of Yorkville.

Democratic incumbent Audra Hendrix of Yorkville also filed for re-election. Democrat Anthony Magliari of Newark has announced intention to run in District 1 but has not yet filed. 

Two seats are up for grabs in the November 2020 election in District 1. However, current District 1 board member Matthew Prochaska of Bristol is running in the Republican primary for circuit clerk. If Prochaska were to win the primary and the general election, a vacancy would open, as his county board term runs until 2022.

In District 2 on the county board, filing records show running are former board member Dan Koukol of Oswego, incumbent Tony Giles of Oswego, incumbent Matt Kellogg of Yorkville and Gabriella Shanahan of Joliet, all Republicans.

Mary Murray of Oswego will run on the Democratic ticket in District 2, filing Monday. Democrat Karen Novy of Oswego has now filed, as well.

Incumbent Democrat Elizabeth Flowers says she also intends to seek re-election.

Three seats are up for election in District 2.

As mentioned, the position of Kendall County Circuit Clerk will have a Republican primary. Republican Michelle Halbesma of Yorkville filed for election on Monday, along with Prochaska. Emily Carlson of Yorkville has also announced intent to run for circuit clerk, but has not yet filed.

On the Democratic ticket, Ryan Kauffman of Oswego is running for circuit clerk and has filed, creating a contested general election.

Currently, uncontested, are Republican incumbents, Coroner Jacquie Purcell and State's Attorney Eric Weis, who both filed on Monday.

Candidates have until December 2nd to file for election.
