CAIRO, Ill. - Judson Childs and Karl Klein are familiar faces to people in Cairo. They soon will be the face of the City.

Childs and Klein came in first and second in Tuesday's Illinois Consolidated Primary, meaning one of the two will be the next Mayor in Cairo. "Cairo has potential," Childs said. "There is no "I" in teamwork, and if the Mayor and City Council work together, we can get things done." "I think the time is now," Klein said. "We have the chance to get things done and I think we can."

Childs won the Primary with 440 votes. Klein came in second with 170. "I was a big fan of President Kennedy," Childs said. "He said, 'Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.' I think it's 'Ask not what Cairo can do for you, ask what you can do for Cairo.'" "If we can get the budget passed, auditors in here, we can begin to get things done. I think the future is bright for this town," Klein said.

The two men face off April 17th.
