Jakobsson Wins Urbana City Council Primary

February 23, 2011

Eric Jakobsson had a commanding lead over Brian Dolinar in Tuesday's Democratic primary for the Urbana City Council seat in Ward Two.

Of the 53 votes cast, Jakobsson picked up all but five votes. Dolinar quit campaigning more than a week ago after a meeting with his opponent in which he endorsed Jakobsson's candidacy. Jakobsson, who is married to State Rep. Naomi Jakobsson (D-Urbana), was appointed to the council in December to replace former alderman David Gehrig.

His name will appear on the April 5th ballot, with no Republican opposition expected.
