OSSINING, N.Y. -- Three Town Board candidates will be kept off the Republican ballot this fall after a decision by a state appellate court, according to an article in the theexaminernews.com.
A four-judge panel of the Second Appellate Judicial Division of New York decided Aug. 18 to uphold an Aug. 7 Supreme Court ruling that found Ossining Town Board candidate Aaron Spring had not properly collected signatures for himself, fellow board candidate Michael Milner and Town Supervisor candidate John Perillo, the article said.
While the candidate’s will remain off the Republican Party line, they will remain on the Conservative Party line, the article said.
The three candidates needed 205 valid signatures to be on the ballot for the Sept. 10 primary, but of the 343 signatures they collected, 35 were invalidated by the Westchester County Board of Elections, the story said. Democrats then filed a lawsuit alleging 147 of the signatures were not properly gathered since a witness was not present, the article said.
