IL Supreme Court: East St. Louis mayor will not be on April ballot

East St. Louis, MO (KTRS) – An issue with ballot signatures will keep the Mayor of East St. Louis off of the municipal ballot.

The Illinois Supreme Court ruled that Mayor Alvin Parks Jr.’s did not collect enough signatures to appear on the April 7 ballot. Yesterday’s ruling reversed judgements by lower courts that allowed Parks to remain on the ballot. Parks has been mayor since 2007. Although he submitted more signatures than required, election officials determined that several of the signatures were not valid.

Two candidates are challenging Parks in next month’s contest.
