A municipal electoral board will review City Council candidate Frank Garcia's eligibility to run for City Council after John Prendiville filed an objection relating to his voter registration status.
A municipal electoral board will review one candidate’s objection to the other candidate’s eligibility to run for the At-Large City Council seat in the 2013 municipal election. John Prendiville said Wednesday his objection is that when his opponent, Frank Garcia, filed his nomination papers, he was not a registered voter in Wheaton and therefore does not qualify to run for office.

According to the City of Wheaton, candidates must be registered voters of the City of Wheaton and must live within city limits for at least one year. Garcia said the candidacy requirements could be interpreted in different ways, as voters in DuPage County must …

The District 200 Board of Education tonight will decide on a ballot question related to plans to rebuild Jefferson Early Childhood Center.
The District 200 Board of Education tonight will vote on a referendum question asking taxpayers to support an increase to pay for a new Jefferson Early Childhood Center. The board last month reviewed two revised and less expensive concepts for a new school to replace the 1958 structure that currently houses students at 130 N. Hazelton Ave. The $17.6 million, 59,000-square-foot concept is less expensive than the originally proposed $29 million and $18.3 million projects, and eliminates plans for district administrative offices and the additional parking they would require.
