The spring election results have brought in some change to local communities across the Northwest suburbs, including a new village president in Lannon, Tom Gudex.

Gudex won 71 percent of 335 votes cast in his race against Jerry Newman.

Even though Gudex said he experienced political sabotage when he was censured by the board earlier this year, the voters saw through the "nonsense."

"I feel pretty good about it," Gudex said. "We're all going to work together. The village is doing good, but we're going to work together to build on what we have to make things even better. I'm for more open government; we're not going to have all these closed meetings, so no one will have to worry about our transparency."

Here are the full election results in other local races.
