Evanston School District 65 Board President Sunith Kartha has filed a petition seeking to have the only non-incumbent running in April's election kicked off the ballot.
Kartha in a petition to be heard by a County Electoral Board hearing officer Thursday says candidate Nicholas Korzeniowski failed to consecutively number his petition sheets and that he did not have them properly signed and notarized.
While Kartha is not up for election in 2019, the three incumbents who are -- Sergio Hernandez, Rebeca Mendoza and Anya Tanyavutti -- all voted to select Kartha as board president.

Korzeniowski declined to comment on the challenge to his candidacy.
The hearing on the challenge is scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday at the downtown Chicago office of the Cook County Clerk.
Korzeniowski lost his first bid to win election to the board in 2017.
