A candidate who filed to run for a seat on the Barrington Hills Village Board will remain on the ballot after a resident unsuccessfully challenged her nomination petition.

During a meeting Dec. 8, the Barrington Hills Electoral Board, which includes Village President Martin McLaughlin, Trustee Colleen Konicek Hannigan and Village Clerk Nikki Pano, voted to overturn two objections to Linda Cools’ candidacy made by Barrington Hills resident Arnold Cernik.  Cernik said Cools should be kicked off the April 2 ballot, alleging she included too many required signatures on her nomination petition and incorrectly filed her statement of economic interest in the wrong county.

Regarding the signatures, Cernik argued Cools violated Illinois law by exceeding the maximum number of signatures, which, he said, is guided by the total turnout of the previous village board election. He said candidates’ petition signatures cannot exceed 8 percent of the 1,066 votes that were cast in the 2017 election in Barrington Hills.

Good news to report to the residents of Barrington Hills: the local tax levy has — once again — decreased, making 2018 the fifth year in a row that our residents will realize tax savings. Since 2013, the levy has consistently decreased, thus far a total of 24 percent. In Barrington Hills, we are doing more with less. Another highlight is the 2018 Roads Program. (the village) exceeded the miles of paved roads by 50 percent. In 2018, working with our new village engineers, the village of Barrington Hills was able to improve a record high 4.79 miles of local roads.
