Buffalo Grove’s electoral board will meet Monday to hear the objections filed to the nominating petitions of a resident who hopes to run for a trustee position this spring.
Trustee Andrew Stein, who is seeking re-election, filed an objection Wednesday to Jeffrey Battinus’ petitions after learning that Battinus did not file a statement of economic interests, which was part of the paperwork election candidates were required to file by Dec. 26.

The electoral board meeting will begin at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 7 at Village Hall. Members of the electoral board — Village President Jeff Braiman, Trustee Jeff Berman and Village Clerk Janet Sirabian — will hear from both sides before coming to a decision.
Should the electoral board sustain Stein’s objection, Battinus will have five days to request judicial review with the Cook County Circuit Court clerk. Battinus said Wednesday that he will not withdraw his candidacy. He filed his statement of economic interests on Jan. 2.
If Battinus is removed from the ballot, the April 9 trustee race will be uncontested. In addition to Stein, incumbents Beverly Sussman and Lester Ottenheimer are running for the three open seats.
