About this Article

Former Island Lake Mayor Charles Amrich's bid to reclaim that post was dealt a potentially fatal blow Tuesday by a Lake County judge. Judge Margaret Mullen dismissed Amrich's appeal of an electoral board ruling that he was ineligible to run. Mullen sided with opposing attorneys who argued his lawyer didn't properly deliver vital paperwork in the matter. The move leaves incumbent Mayor Debbie Herrmann the lone candidate for the post in the April 9 election. "We're looking at options," Amrich said.
