It’s a stark contrast from the election two years ago, when half a dozen candidates running for local office had their nominating petitions challenged for technical violations.

This election there were none, meaning that all 11 candidates for Oak Park village trustee will be on the ballot for the April 2 Consolidated Election, according to Village Clerk Vicki Scaman.

In 2017, trustee candidates Glenn Brewer, Peter Barber and Emily Masalski and clerk candidates Elia Gallegos, Lori Malinski and Mas Takiguchi, all faced challenges to their nominating petitions. All the candidates in that election overcame the challenge except for Masalski.

The following Oak Park village trustee candidates will appear in the following random order on the ballot for the election on April 2:

  • Thomas Gary (D)
  • Graham Y. Brisben
  • James Thompson
  • Susan Buchanan
  • Bridgett Baron
  • Tim Thomas
  • Christian Harris
  • Joshua Klayman
  • Arti Walker Peddakotla
  • James “Jim” Taglia
  • Cory J. Wesley
