Przybylo Wins Niles Mayor Race

Niles' mayor-to-be says the hard work on the campaign paid off.

Przybylo Wins Niles Mayor Race

 

Lots of well-wishers came to the Niles New Party's election night gathering Tuesday at White Eagle Banquets to congratulate Andrew Przybylo on winning the village's mayor's race.

With 22 of 24 precincts reporting, Przybylo had almost 64 percent of the vote. He ran on a party ticket with three trustee candidates who also won. 

"I think the message that resonated with voters--and this is a theme that popped up in February--is about Niles pride," Przybylo said Tuesday. "Prior to that it was progressive government. Then the next thing that popped up was the business community and its activity within the village--a partnership there."

Elsewhere:

"That evolved into the idea of retail sales and lowering the property tax," Przybylo added. "I think the property tax theme really caught on." 

As far as the mechanics of the campaign, he said, his team produced targeted mailings, and had volunteers making an average of 15 phone calls a night, right up until election day. 

Przybylo will likely be sworn in as mayor in May.
