Two political newcomers will defend their nominating petitions before the Carpentersville electoral board this weekend. Resident Frank Stoneham challenged the candidacies of Don Burroway and Humberto García who must now do their best to keep their names on April’s election ballot.
Stoneham ran for village trustee in 2007 and was himself taken off the ballot. He has filed objections against candidates in multiple elections since then.
Stoneham said there is nothing personal in the objections. He doesn’t know either candidate. He said the reason for his challenge is to maintain a level of professionalism on the board.
