Long time at large Peoria councilman Gary Sandberg's name will appear on the ballot for1st District councilman.   The Peoria Board of Elections had bumped him from the ballot, saying he hadn't been living in the district for a full year. A judge ruled the law only requires a candidate reside the CITY for a full year before running for the city council, NOT the district. The ruling comes at the last minute, because absentee voting begins tomorrow. It means a three way race next month with Sandberg facing fellow candidates Denise Moore, and Randall Emert for the Peoria 1st district.
