Heiland's motion to dismiss recount denied

A Rock Island County judge Monday denied a request made by attorneys for Helen Heiland, East Moline's incumbent 1st Ward alderman, to dismiss challenger Connie Corcoran Wilson's petition seeking a full recount of the Feb. 22 primary results.

Peter Church and John Callas, of McCarthy, Callas, Fuhr & Ellison, Rock Island, argued that vote totals listed in Ms. Wilson's petition are not valid because they aren't the official results of the election.
