  • In the race for the Crawford County Commission 2nd District seat, former commissioner Tom Moody, of Frontenac, defeated fellow Frontenac resident and incumbent Linda Grilz by 550 votes to 421. Another challenger, Tim Gintner, finished with 374 votes. Results were still unofficial as of press time, and absentee ballots must still be counted.
    “I’m excited and very pleased,” Moody said. “We worked hard, and the people voiced their opinion.”
    He added that he felt Grilz worked a good campaign.
    Grilz, who took office as Crawford County’s first woman commissioner in January 2009, said that she was disappointed at losing re-election.
    “I like doing the work, serving the people,” she said. “I have served, I don’t have any regrets about what I’ve done for the citizens of Crawford County. I’ve made my decisions with their best interests at heart. The citizens have spoken, and I wish Tom Moody the best.”
    When asked if she would consider running for office again, Grilz said she had no plans to do so at this time.
    “It’s too early to tell,” she said.
