There has been a challenge filed against the signatures on the nominating petition for Kewanee Mayoral candidate Brad Ahrens. Sources tell WKEI that a challenge of signatures on Mr Ahrens' nominating petition was filed yesterday with the City Clerk in Kewanee and County Clerk Barb Link. The challenge means that before Mr Ahrens name can be added to a ballot for a primary election in February, there will be a hearing in front an electoral board to determine whether or not Mr Ahrens is allowed on the ballot. There is no word at the moment on when such a hearing might take place. WKEI has reached out to Mr Ahrens for comment and will update this story if comments are offered.
