Robert Miller, after having been kicked off the ballot by Crystal Lake City officials acting in their capacity as the Crystal Lake Electoral Board, went to court.
Wednesday, in Judge Thomas Meyer’s courtroom, all that happened was the setting of a court date.
It will be January 22nd.
The judge requested an official transcript of the Electoral Board hearing from the Electoral Board.
Miller is representing himself in court, just as Marshal Lowe did when he was kicked off the Algonquin Township ballot while running for Road Commissioner in the early 1980’s against Del Miller.
The issue was similar.
The clerk’s office was not open for the filing of Lowe’s Statement of Economic Interest on the deadline for filing of township petitions, as Lowe remembers it.
In Miller’s case, the County Clerk’s office was closed in late November, 2018, because of a snow storm.
Attending were objectors Ellen Brady and Cathy Ferguson, plus Ralph Dawson, a member of the Electoral Board.
All are long-term members of the Crystal Lake City Council.
