The State Board of Elections has unanimously voted to keep Associate Judge John “Mo” Madonia on the March primary ballot.
Madonia’s petitions to run for a circuit judgeship were challenged by his Republican primary opponent, Kent Gray. Gray said Madonia’s petitions had multiple flaws, including listing his home address as Springfield, when Madonia lives in Leland Grove.
The elections board rejected that complaint, noting that homes in Leland Grove still have Springfield mailing addresses. Gray tells the State Journal-Register he may appeal the decision in circuit court.
