Windsor, IL. (ECWd) -
The Village of Windsor held an Electoral Board Hearing today and heard the objections to three candidates, with a fourth candidate withdrawing his petitions.
A decision should come next week in the follow-up meeting.
Some things of interest said in this hearing:
- We are not Chicago and need all the people we can running for office (@ 19 min in video)
- Small communities have a different standard with petition packets (starts @ 19:50 in the video)
Obviously, we disagree with both comments and insist that the law stands, no matter how large or small a community is.
We agree there is a difference in how courts have ruled on election objections, but those rulings tend to be aimed at the number of petition sheets, not the population of the local government.
