Homer Township Board Decision to Be Appealed in Will County Circuit Court
The Homer Township Independent Party will appeal the Homer Township Electoral Board’s decision to remove Marcela Cuevas as a candidate for Homer Township Clerk on the April 4 Consolidated Election ballot. The Electoral Board removed Cuevas on Jan. 19 by sustaining an objection filed by township resident Renea Wojnowski. Supervisor Pam Meyers and Trustee John Kruczek voted to sustain Wojnowski’s objection, while Trustee Vicki Bozen dissented.
“This decision by the Homer Township Electoral Board is the latest example of the dysfunctional political system in Illinois,” said Jim Orban, who is the Homer Township Independent Party candidate for Township Supervisor. “The idea that our political opponents were sitting in judgement in this case was absurd. We feel comfortable that once the facts are presented to an impartial party that knows the law, this decision will be overturned.”
