Des Plaines mayoral candidate Mark Walsten

About this Article

Des Plaines 6th Ward Alderman Mark Walsten will be able to run for mayor in April after all. The city's electoral board Thursday dismissed an objection against Walsten's candidacy after the resident who filed it, Carl Mauter-Hollenbeck, voluntarily rescinded the challenge. Walsten's name will appear on the April 9 ballot along with two others vying for the mayoral post.
