Countywide roundup

Some of the countywide races not yet mentioned here this evening:

Associate Judge Jesse G. Reyes has defeated Terry MacCarthy in the Glowacki vacancy. With 87.17% of the votes counted in the City, Reyes has 254,059 votes to MacCarthy's 152,274. MacCarthy, however, won 138,000 suburban votes, holding on to an approximately 7,000 vote lead in what the first Mayor Daley called "the county towns."

Maureen Ward Kirby has bested Peter John Curielli for the Healy vacancy by a 4-1 margin in the City, and nearly as large a margin in the suburbs.

Marilyn F. Johnson is also running ahead of Joseph Robert Papavero for the Keehan vacancy by a 4-1 margin.

Reyes, Kirby and Johnson were the candidates slated by the Democratic Party.
