Leonard Bodack, Jr. won the special election to fill the remainder of Jim Ferlo's term as City Council representative for District 7. The Children's Committee co-sponsored an Egg Hunt with Citparks. Highland Park's Patrick Dowd won a seat on the School Board in the primary election and Leonard Bodack, Jr.
