Confirmed: Ward Out, Bryant In as Mayor of Robbins (Robbins, IL) – In what is being called a big upset in Robbins, incumbent Mayor Tyrone Ward was apparently knocked out of his seat by challenger Darren E. Bryant.

Elect David Sheppard

According to the Cook County Clerk’s website, all 7 of 7 precincts have reported with 457 votes for Ward and 546 votes for Bryant, with Bryant leading by a margin of 89 votes. Recent calls and emails to The Southland Journal claim that Ward may still win the race, saying that Ward may have had over 100 mail-in ballots that have not-yet been counted.

According to a representative from the Cook County Clerk’s office, the Village of Robbins had a total of 96 mail-in ballots requested, and as of Thursday, April 8, had received and counted 31. This leaves a total of 65 votes that may still be received and counted toward this race, which would not be enough votes for Ward to retain his seat.

Election law states that mail-in ballots must be postmarked by April 6 and received by April 20 to be counted in this year’s Consolidated Election.

Monica Gordon for Cook County Commissioner

As far as the race for Clerk, incumbent Debra J. Yates was knocked out by independent challenger Sharon Snoddy Dyson by a margin of 89 votes. Regardless of the remaining mail-in ballots to be counted, Dyson’s seat is secure as the new Clerk.

The race for Village Trustee was closer, with a total of 7 candidates vying for 3 seats. Ward-backed candidates Collier, Freeman, and Henry are currently the apparent losers in this race, but by a thin margin. Please refer to the chart below to see the vote totals as of this writing:

The Climate Crisis Is Worse Than You Can Imagine. Here’s What Happens If You Try. – Peter Kalmus, out of his mind, stumbled back toward the car. It was all happening. All the stuff he’d been trying to get others to see, and failing to get others to see — it was all here. The day before, when his family started their Labor Day backpacking trip along the oak-lined dry creek bed in Romero Canyon, in the mountains east of Santa Barbara, the temperature had been 105 degrees. Now it was 110 degrees, and under his backpack, his “large mammalian self,” as Peter called his body, was more than just overheating. He was melting down. Everything felt wrong. His brain felt wrong and the planet felt wrong, and everything that lived on the planet felt wrong, off-kilter, in the wrong place.
