*** UPDATED x2 - Stroger for MWRD - Rush, Hardiman file *** Today is the last day to file petitions

Monday, Dec 4, 2017

* Tribune

State Board of Elections Chairman Bill Cadigan says candidates for the March 20 primary who are in line to file petitions at the end of the day Monday will be part of a lottery for the last ballot position if another person running for the same office is also queued up at that time.

But Cadigan, a Republican attorney from Wilmette, warns that those seeking the final spot need to be cautious.

Appearing on WGN-AM 720, Cadigan recounted the story of an unnamed Republican candidate who chartered a small plane to arrive with his petitions by the closing deadline, only to find the Springfield airport closed off by bad weather.

The candidate’s aide on the ground pleaded with air traffic controllers to allow the plane to fly over a field and drop the bundled petitions to the ground. The idea was nixed.

Still, weather conditions bettered and the candidate was able to make it to the State Board of Elections headquarters by 4:50 p.m. — with only 10 minutes to spare.

*** UPDATE 1 *** Congressman Bobby Rush has filed his petitions. As promised, Howard Brookins filed to run as well.

Tio Hardiman also filed petitions for governor.

*** UPDATE 2 *** I doubt he has a chance for that seat, either…

* Gutierrez’s departure opens up generational fault line in Chicago Latino politics: And Sol Flores, 43, the executive director of La Casa Norte community organization that helps homeless youth and families, will be looking to tap into the goodwill she has built up through that work. Flores is a first-time candidate who was part of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s transition team in 2015. She said she’s out to bring a woman’s voice to the contest, and that her community activism “proves I can get stuff done.” Each is trying to gather enough signatures this weekend to meet Monday’s candidate filing deadline. They’re also each trying to open a new chapter in Chicago’s Latino political history after decades dominated by older players nursing old grudges.

A new development on Sunday perked up ears around the county, as Garcia’s Executive Assistant Alma Anaya will also be filing petitions for the spring election. Munoz dismissed the rumors of a potential showdown with Anaya in the election, calling the move “an insurance policy.” Munoz declined to elaborate on why Garcia would want two candidates that he would support filing for the same position.

    Having your assistant file as an “insurance policy”? Is that the new way to say “shill candidate”? That is baffling.


  2. - Fax Machine - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:16 am:

    15th Ward Alderman Ray Lopez filed for 4th Congressional which is surprising.

    Stroger is running for the 2 year spot on MWRD one on one against former State Rep Kim DuBuclet.

    I think he wins with 60%.


  4. - Huh? - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:43 am:

    Does the county really want the toddler to have anything to do with the MWRD sewer system?


  5. - Northsider - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:48 am:

    Toddler and the sewers?

    Nah. Too easy.

    Good band name, though.


  6. - Just Observing - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 12:13 pm:

    Whatever you think of Todd, he has a chance to win the two year MWRD spot.


  7. - Doofman - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 12:14 pm:

    Erika Harold has a primary challenger


  8. - LXB - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 12:36 pm:

    Is anybody familiar with Preston Nelson, the self-proclaimed libertarian activist challenging Mike Bost?


  9. - TopHatMonocle - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 1:45 pm:

    Stroger wasn’t going to make the ballot for Cook county board president. If he really stopped collecting signatures for MWRD to collect for that instead, then he won’t make the ballot for MWRD either. If he was just blowing smoke about President to get media attention, and he was collecting for MWRD the whole time, well then maybe he has a chance.


  10. - Soccermom - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 3:06 pm:

    Who’s primarying Erika?


  11. - Soccermom - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 3:09 pm:

    Let me google that for me. Gary Grasso, who sits on the DuPage County Board. Hm.


  12. - Former Downstater - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 4:15 pm:

    Apparently the Cook County Clerk updates its new website three times a day. Their last posting was Shaw at 12:30. Fioretti has filed since then, who knows who else. You know you’re in bad shape when the ISBE site performs better than you.
