I met up with incumbent Eck at Burkel's One Block Over. That's where she, Steve Campbell and Jeff Osborne awaited the results.

"I think that I have my record now that I can stand on and I can encourage people to look at my record and know that I have been out there fighting for the residents of District 11," Eck said.

"Over the years of business I know a lot of people and I really kind of know the temperature what people really want," Campbell said. "The people are just the fuel that on, I mean this is what I do every day.

Across the variety of candidates that I spoke with, the general theme is to continue to encourage voter participation for local elections.
