Electoral Board rules Taylor, Masters off primary ballot

There are interesting aspects in both these cases and I hope to get back to the decisions in these cases in more detail.

For now, though, suffice it to say that the Cook County Electoral Board late last week sustained objections to the nominating papers of Mable Taylor, candidate for the Hardy-Campbell vacancy in the 7th Subcircuit, and Judge Allan W. Masters, candidate for the Jordan vacancy in the 12th Subcircuit.

Unless either case is successfully appealed, neither Taylor nor Masters will be on the March primary ballot.

Robert D. Kuzas
Taylor's removal leaves Robert D. Kuzas unopposed in the race for the Hardy-Campbell vacancy. I did not previously have his campaign website linked, but I found it this morning and it has been added to the blog Sidebar. Kuzas touts his experience as both a lawyer and police officer on his site and notes that he has been on the Board of Directors of the Jesse White Tumblers for 17 years (he also claims the Secretary of State's endorsement). In addition, Kuzas notes that he offers bilingual services to his clients in both Spanish and Polish. He has been licensed in Illinois since 1989.

The removal of Judge Masters from the ballot in the 12th Subcircuit race leaves four candidates, Samuel Bae, Ralph Eugene Meczyk, James Edward Hanlon, Jr. and Judge James L. Kaplan.
