Milwaukee - On Wednesday, Chez Ordoñez, candidate for the 8th Aldermanic District announced through a news release, that his name will be place on the February 21st, Primary ballot. The Milwaukee Election Commission on Tuesday decided on a vote of 2-1 to place Ordoñez name on the ballot and ruled that Alderman Donovan's claims to disqualified Ordoñez lacked substantial evidence to keep Ordoñez off the ballot.
Ordoñez says, Donovan's claims were baseless and frivolus. Ordoñez is glad that the election commission agreed with him. It was just an attempt by Donovan to keep a strong and progessive candidate from challenging him in February's election, according to Ordoñez.
Ordoñez says, he will continue to run a very honest, transparent and grassroots campaign.
Donovan was first elected in 2000 and has been alderman for 11 years in the 8th District. He is also facing two other challengers as well, they are Jennifer Morales and Benjamin Juarez.
