Grafton supervisor calls for end to election challenge

Grafton Township Supervisor Linda Moore is calling for an end to a legal challenge to the candidacy of one of her 2013 primary opponents.

In a news release emailed Saturday, Moore said Huntley Village Trustee and former Grafton Administrator Pam Fender has a right to be on the February primary ballot.

“Mr. [Marty] Waitzman, I am asking you to have your supporters withdraw their objections to Ms. Fender’s rightful place on the ballot,” Moore said in the release.

Waitzman also is running for Grafton supervisor.

“It should be the voters, not attorneys that decide who should be the next supervisor,” Moore said.

A hearing is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Huntley Park District Building.

Moore and Fender have been political enemies ever since the Grafton Township Board appointed Fender administrator and tried to strip Moore of many of her powers.

After a legal challenge, a judge sided with Moore and Fender was dismissed as administrator.
