The Des Plaines Electoral Board has removed a candidate for the city's 6th Ward alderman seat from the April 5 ballot over discrepancies in his nominating papers.

The board -- Mayor Marty Moylan, City Clerk Gloria Ludwig and 8th Ward Alderwoman Rosemary Argus -- took candidate Cliff Matthews out of the election after a hearing Monday on claims of numerous errors in his documents, including unnumbered pages, improper binding and questionable signatures.

A hearing on objections filed to the candidacies of two more 6th Ward aldermanic hopefuls -- Mario Palacios and Richard Hissong -- has been continued indefinitely.

A fourth candidate for the 6th Ward seat, incumbent Alderman Mark Walsten, has no objectors.

Roediger, chairman of the Citizens for Mark Walsten campaign, questioned minor irregularities with the other three candidates' petitions, including the validity of signatures of registered voters. The signatures will be verified with the Cook County Clerk's Office sometime today, Ludwig said.
