A Champaign city council member said he expects to remain on the ballot for April's municipal election despite his petitions being challenged.
Champaign City Attorney Fred Stavins said former Champaign Mayor Dan McCollum is objecting to incumbent Will Kyles' petitions based on signatures. Kyles is facing a challenge from former council member Gina Jackson in the race for the District 1 seat.
Kyles said he acted in good faith when gathering the required number of signatures, but he said there are a few problems with his petitions. That includes some people who were not registered voters, even though Kyles said he asked people if they were registered before letting them sign the petition.
