Gouker elected new county board chairman
Veteran board member Kim Gouker, Byron, was elected Ogle County Board chairman Monday night by the newly-seated county board.
Gouker, who has served on the county board for approximately 14 years, won the position by a narrow two-vote margin, 13 -11, a few minutes after the 24-member board was sworn in by Judge Robert Hanson.
Another board veteran, Lyle Hopkins, Polo, was also nominated for chairman, but that vote ended in a 12-12 tie.
