Island Lake Village Clerk Connie Mascillino on Wednesday said she has resubmitted the town's list of candidates for the April 9 election to the Lake County and McHenry County clerks without the name of mayoral candidate Charles Amrich. The move comes a day after a Lake County judge dismissed Amrich's appeal to stay on the ballot. Amrich was disqualified as a candidate earlier this month because of a $174 debt to the village that wasn't paid before he signed campaign paperwork. He appealed, but a judge dismissed the case Tuesday because his attorney failed to properly deliver documents relating to the matter. In a telephone interview Wednesday, Amrich said he hasn't decided if he will appeal the judge's ruling. Incumbent Mayor Debbie Herrmann now is the lone candidate for the post.
