Justin Behrens had filed a nominating petition for Crestwood School Drector, but was disqualified for not filing financial paperwork in a timely manner. Behrens mounted a write-in campaign. A total of 588 ballots were cast under write-in. Behrens told the Eagle he believed at least 538 of those votes were for him. “I had poll workers in every township and I won in Fairview and Slocum. I learned a lot and will be back again in 2 years,” said Behrens.
