A Lakemoor village board trustee candidate who was dropped from the April 9 ballot has filed paperwork to run as a write-in candidate for village president.
Kimberly Beach, a village board trustee since 2005, was kicked off the ballot by the Lakemoor electoral board Feb. 2 for not filing the required number of signatures needed on her nomination petitions.
Since being removed, Beach has filed paperwork to run as a write-in candidate for village president, joining incumbent Ryan “Todd” Weihofen and Tina Asmus in that race.
Attempts to reach Beach regarding her candidacy to the village top slot were unsuccessful Tuesday morning.
According to records on file at Lakemoor village hall, Beach was one of two candidates kicked off the election ballot. Candidate Joseph Enright was also removed by the Lakemoor electoral board in a Feb. 14 decision.
According to the formal findings, both candidates turned in one less than the required 50 signatures needed to run for trustee.
Incumbent candidate Colin McIntyre filed objections to both petitions.
Attempts to reach McIntyre and Enright were also unsuccessful Tuesday morning.
Because of the removals, four people are running for three open village board seats in the election.
Incumbents McIntyre and Phil Lonigro are joined on the ballot by newcomers Alexis Aguilar and Rick Weaver.Copyright © 2014 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
