Here are the candidates who have filed for office in Crystal Lake:
- Haig Haleblian
- Donald Kountz
- James A. Sisto
For City Council:
- Robert Brechbiel
- Cameron D. Hubbard
- Mandy Montford
- Ian Philpot
For City Clerk
- Nick Kachiroubas
Besides being an incumbent, Haleblian has the distinct advantage of having run a campaign before for City Council after having been appointed to the most by Mayor Aaron Shepley.
Local residents will remember his posting of yard signs all over town before anyone else.
They overcame the last name of “Haleblian” by promoting his first name, “Haig.”
Two of the three incumbent city council candidates are guaranteed re-election because they have only one challenger, Robert Brechbiel.
Of course the above observations assume that the non-incumbents do not get kicked off the ballot, as was the case for the past two elections.
There will be no primary election because too few candidates filed.
