TROY
Petition certified

The Miami County Board of Elections certified an incumbent Troy City Council member’s petitions for re-election Tuesday, Feb. 26, after hearing more information about signatures obtained for the petitions.

The board earlier this month voted to reject 3rd Ward Councilman John Schweser’s petitions after finding the petitions did not have enough valid signatures. The board was told Schweser needed 25 valid signatures to be on the ballot, but did not have enough after several people printed their names instead of their signatures on petitions.


Troy lawyer Jose Lopez told the board Schweser had affidavits from those who printed their names stating that they were the ones who had put their names on the petition. Schweser, a Republican, is running unchallenged for re-election.
