At its meeting yesterday afternoon, the Cook County Electoral Board resolved the last four pending challenges to judicial candidates.
The Board turned aside challenges to the nominating petitions of Scott Edward Lipinski (countywide Elrod vacancy), Bonnie Carol McGrath (countywide Johnson vacancy), Carolyn J. Gallagher (countywide Johnson vacancy), and Jennifer Balard (7th Subcircuit, Rivkin-Carothers vacancy). All four candidates have now been cleared to appear on the March primary ballot.
In the course of resolving 68 challenges to judicial candidates (some candidates were faced with more than one challenge), the Cook County Electoral Board sustained five challenges, removing Nathan Benjamin Myers (9th Subcircuit, Berman vacancy), Richard Montgomery Craig (Republican) (12th Subcircuit, "A" vacancy), Cassandra Goodrum-Burton (countywide Johnson vacancy), John P. Carol (countywide Johnson vacancy), and Jo Anne Guillemette (5th Subcircuit, Eadie-Daniels vacancy).
