Decatur mayoral nominee removed from ballot

BRIAN FRANCISCO | The Journal Gazette

The Adams County Election Board voted 2-1 today to remove Democratic Decatur mayoral nominee Daniel Rickord from the November ballot.

The Adams County Republican Party challenged Rickord's candidacy, claiming he and the county Democrats did not meet the state's July 30 deadline for filing ballot vacancies for the Nov. 5 general election.

Republican Kenneth Meyer is now unopposed for mayor.
