Downing Battles Ballot Decision in Court

The Kenosha alderman who has challenged being kept off the ballot in April is scheduled be in court Friday (2/23/18). 16th district Alderman Jesse Downing filed suit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission last month. Kenosha officials originally ruled that Downing should be kept off the ballot in his reelection bid after alleged errors were found on his nomination petitions. Officials said that one page had an incorrect date listed, another had the wrong address for Downing. The state elections commission upheld that decision on appeal. On-line court records indicate that oral arguments were scheduled for 10 AM. If Downing is allowed on the ballot, he will be running against challenger Dominic Ruffalo on April 3rd.
