VALPARAISO — As candidates awaited hearing vote totals, both candidates in the Porter County Commissioner Center District race, were unavailable for comment Tuesday night.

Neither incumbent Jeff Good, a Republican, nor his Democrat opponent Donna Perdue returned telephone messages Tuesday evening to comment on the election or to give their reaction to the delays in announcing vote totals, caused by issues in a dozen precincts throughout Porter County.

Godd ran on his record for Porter County commissioner, including a massive upgrade of public infrastructure without raising taxes.

Perdue, his opponent, said she doesn’t want Porter County to be overrun by urban problems.

Good, 57, founder and president of Valparaiso-based Good Hospitality Services, was born and raised in Morgan Township.

Perdue, 52, who moved to Valparaiso in 2015, said she was in town for the Popcorn Festival when she and her husband decided to live there.
