Daily Herald report

The campaign for the Buffalo Grove village board lost its only non-incumbent Monday when the village's electoral board removed candidate Jeffrey Battinus from the ballot because he failed to file a required statement of economic interest by the Dec. 26 deadline.

The electoral board -- Village President Jeffrey Braiman, Trustee Jeffrey Berman and Village Clerk Janet Sirabian -- granted Trustee Andrew Stein's challenge to Battinus' candidacy, leaving three incumbent trustees seeking three available seats in the April 9 election.

Battinus did not dispute that he missed the filing deadline -- he later filed the statement Jan. 2 -- but argued that Stein's objection, if successful, would deprive Buffalo Grove voters without a choice when they head to the polls on election day.

Besides Stein, trustees Lester Ottenheimer III and Beverly Sussman are seeking re-election April 9.
