Swansea resident Donna Koudelka has filed three petitions for judicial review with the St. Clair County Circuit Clerk's Office.
Koudelka is asking for a review of Swansea Electoral Board's decision last week to keep trustee candidates Katherine Ruocco, Scott Ross and Jeffrey King on the April 9 Consolidated Election ballot.
In her petition filed Wednesday at St. Clair County Courthouse, Koudelka contends the board's decision is contrary to state law and fails to state in its written findings upon what such decision is based on.
Koudelka objected to Ruocco, Ross and King's nominating petitions, because they did not specify whether they were running for a two- or four-year trustee position on their petitions. All are running for a four-year trustee seat.
Hearings on Koudelka's petitions for judicial review will be held within the next 30 days.
Koudelka is asking the court to rule the nominating papers for Ruocco, Ross and King are insufficient and their name should not appear on the April ballot.
Koudelka did not file a petition for judicial review of the electoral board's decision to keep trustee candidate Bill Phillips on the ballot.
