Two candidates and one issue were rejected for the Nov. 5 General Election ballot by the Richland County Board of Elections Tuesday.

Deputy elections director, Bill Freytag, said candidates running for the Mansfield City Schools Board of Education and Shiloh Village Council were rejected.

"Wenda Burnom didn't have enough signatures for the school board petition and Shiloh Village Council candidate Chad Stumbo did not sign the circulator statement on the petition," Freytag said.

 Burnom submitted a total of 92 signatures, 75 are required and the board verified only 57 were valid.

The candidates remaining in the race for Mansfield City School Board are Dina Davis; Chris Elswick; Donna Farland-Smith; Dan Freund and Monica Hubbard.

 Freytag said the board also rejected a peition to allow sales of beer and wine at Springmill Corner Market from 10 a.m. until midnight. Freytag said the petition has 200 signatures and 114 were valid. A total of 176 is required for the issue to appear on the ballot.

In other business, the board certified the signatures on a petition circulated in the Village of Lucas to repeal an ordinance which allows speeding cameras.

Freytag say Village solicitor Joseph Olecski questioned the board if the repeal petition process was done properly. Freytag said the petition will go back to the village and it will have to be refiled with the board in order to appear on the ballot.

 The board also certified candidates running for office in Mansfield, Ontario and Shelby. Freytag said Cass Township's 1-mill, five-year renewal levy for cemetery maintenance was not certified by the board.

Freytag said the issue was sent the county prosecutor because the language on the November ballot did not match the language listed in the 2009 election. Freytag said the board will make a decision on the issue after its reviewed by the county prosecutor.
