Daily Herald report

A Schaumburg Township electoral board hearing on objections to all five Democratic candidates in the April 9 election was continued Thursday night until 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16. There are two separate objections against trustee candidates Moe Patel, Mike Murray, Carolyn A. Quinn and Zuhair Nubani and highway commissioner candidate Michael Lenehan. One objection questions the proper filing of their statements of economic interest. The other argues that new Democratic Committeeman Mike Cudzik wasn't properly appointed himself by the Democratic Party and therefore was unable to legally slate candidates. Current Trustee Diane Dunham, who would normally have served on the electoral board, recused herself for a conflict of interest as she is running against the objected candidates. A Cook County court judge appointed Ellen Raymond, a member of the public from outside the township, to replace Dunham.
