Former Peoria City Council Candidate and self proclaimed activist Amr Elsamny says he will persist in his effort to have the primary election results thrown out. Although it’s unclear how that might happen.

Peoria County Judge James Mack today dismissed his case with prejudice. That’s a final judgment.

The slate of at-large candidates is set in the City of Peoria. Rob Hanauer won the fourth and final spot on the ballot by one vote. He beat Amr Elsamny 2004 to 2003.


The mailed ballots that trickled in since election day created a state of flux between Hanauer and Elsamny. Hanauer was declared the winner at the Election Commission Meeting Thursday when they certified the results of the February 28th primary.
