Country Club Hills aldermen Vincent Lockett (2nd) and Anthony Davis (5th) will have to wait until next week to find out whether they still will be on the ballot for the April 9 election.

Their candidacies are being challenged on grounds they failed to provide receipts for their aldermanic expense accounts. Owing money to the city would disqualify them as candidates.

A hearing Thursday was continued until 10:30 a.m. Monday at city hall, 4200 W. Main St., according to attorney Tiffany Nelson-Jaworski, who is representing Lockett and Davis. She said she expects a verdict then.

Testimony had to be cut off late Thursday afternoon because a traffic court hearing was scheduled for the evening.

The city’s electoral board that will rule on the challenge includes Mayor Dwight Welch and City Clerk Debbie McIlvain — both opponents of Lockett and Davis — as well as Ald. Tyrone Hutson.
