Last October there were questions whether incumbent Joliet City Councilman Terry Morris would even seek re-election. Morris was the subject of a hefty $31,850 fine levied by the Illinois State Board of Elections, plus another $5,000 fine for failing to comply with a board order.
Morris was first elected to the Joliet City Council in 2011. However, in recent years his political action committee had turned into an accounting mess.
Last fall, Joliet Patch was the first news agency to report that the state election board had issued the large fine against the Citizens To Elect Terry Morris. Since then, Morris has cleared up all of his problems with the state election board, the agency informed Joliet Patch this week.
