Three people who filed to run for Mayor of Maywood and are facing objections to their candidacies will have to wait to see whether they’ll make it on the ballot for the April 4 election.
Public hearings on the objections filed against Maywood Mayor Edwenna Perkins, sitting trustee Antonette Dorris (in addition to the members of her Maywood Visionary Party) and attorney Luther Spence, all of which were heard before a three-person local electoral board today, will be extended to Jan. 13.
During today’s hearing, objections against Quincy Johnson and Kathy Travis, were both upheld, which means that they won’t be on the ballot.
Mayoral candidates Mary “May” Larry and Henderson Yarbrough are not facing any challenges. VFP
