   Two women who were elected to a metro-east park board may have to sue to take their seats on that board.  

   Ruby Mattox and Dora Warren finished first and second in an election to fill two vacant seats on the Stites Township Park District Board in Brooklyn, Illinois.  

   St. Clair County Clerk Tom Holbrook certified the election results months ago.   But the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the park board has refused to swear them in, calling their election "a mistake."  

   Mattox told the paper that her opposition to no-bid contracts the park board has awarded may be why the board is now claiming there were no vacancies to fill.
