The petitions submitted for Supervisor, Clerk, and Collector have been challenged by TWO people.
The challenges are identical. Were they afraid the Normal Electoral Board couldn’t read the first one so they filed two?
Guess who is back challenging again? The guy who got Normal into this mess:
He is joined by former Trustee Jeff Fritzen. Remember him? The guy who was gifted a bicycle from Koos’ bike shop when he left the council: https://blnnews.com/2020/04/20/fritzens-bike-you-have-to-see-this-one/
You can see what both filed at this link: https://www.normalil.gov/114/Municipal-Elections
The two items noted are laughable but we know the Electoral Board will agree with them anyway.
Normal only complies with laws they don’t like when forced. How many times has the Attorney General ruled them guilty of violating the Open Meetings Act? Since acting like an Incorporated Town is a much bigger item the Electoral Board isn’t going to concede the issue – especially if the Town Clerk hears the case like last time.
Court is the only route to justice.
Expect real tears afterward.
